As the Museum's collections of Greek artefacts are outstanding, the emphasis of this day is on aspects of Greek architecture and sculpture, looking at the significance, symbolism and context of the Acropolis in Athens; the development of figural sculpture; and Homeric legend in Greek Vase Painting. To maximise the proximity of the Pompeii and Herculaneum exhibition, other topics introduce the art of that part of the Roman world, around the Bay of Naples.
