GODDESS AND POLIS: THE PANATHENAIC FESTIVAL IN ANCIENT ATHENS. Jenifer Neils et al. Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth College, Hanover, 1992. Published in association with Princeton University Press. 228 pp. with 231 ills. (23 col.). 32 x 24 cm. LC 92-17660 ISBN 0691036128 In English.
Documenting an exhibition of painted amphoras, coins, bronze statuettes of Athena, and other ancient Greek artifacts drawn primarily from American collections, this catalogue presents a detailed study of the Panathenaia, an important festival of athletic and equestrian contests, musical competitions, poetry recitals, feasts and other events first mounted in Athens in 566 B.C. Individual commentaries discussing stylistic and iconographic aspects of the 71 featured works are preceded by six scholarly essays which examine the history of the quadrennial celebration, the production and significance of the large amphoras and ritual textiles created especially for the festival as prizes and offerings, and the evolution of Athena's image as reflected in sculptures from the Acropolis.
