Special Collections organized an exhibit of the entire collection of Classical antiquities donated in 1989 by Ernest and George Allen, both class of 1940. Altogether 24 artifacts, they range from a small Mycenaean side-spouted jar (mid-14th century B.C.), which was used as a baby feeder, to an Attic Black-figure olpe (520-500 B.C.) depicting Peleus (father of Achilles) in a tree escaping the intentions of a lion and a boar.
On April 23, 2009, the exhibit was part of an event entitled “The Journey: the Greek American Dream,” in celebration of the Jaharis family and Professor Alexander Kitroeff, creator of the film. You can read an article about the event by student Kyle McCloskey in the Bi-Co News.
The entire collection of artifacts can be viewed online.
