The Cesnola Collection of antiquities from Cyprus preserves the island’s artistic traditions from prehistoric through Roman times and represents the first large group of ancient Mediterranean works to enter the museum’s collection. This catalogue, which focuses on Cypriot glass, contains over 500 works dating from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Byzantine period (ca. 1500 B.C.–ca. A.D. 625) from one of the most comprehensive collections of Cypriot art in the world. Illustrations of each object are accompanied by a detailed catalogue entry, including references to comparative works. In addition, informed essays make the catalogue a perfect introduction to Cypriot glass and provide a survey of the importance of the collection. 
 

Christopher S. Lightfoot is curator in the Department of Greek and Roman Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
