Aegean Seals : An Introduction
by O. Krzyszkowska




Overview -
Although the Corpus der minoischen und mykenischen Siegel (CMS) has been documenting examples of Aegean glyptic since the 1950s, the subject is still a daunting one for non-specialists. Designed with students in mind, this study draws on the CMS data in presenting a general introduction to, and synthesis of, Aegean seals and sealings set against their cultural and technological background. With lots of photographs and illustrations, Olga Krzyszkowska's study presents the evidence in chronological order from the 3rd millennium BC to the late Bronze Age. Information on dating, materials, shapes, techniques, motifs and composition, style and seal use is given, whilst the text is furnished with examples from across the Aegean world. A large glossary and a user's guide to the CMS are given in the appendices.
