CLAS 220: Images of the Greek Symposium
compiled by John Porter, University of Saskatchewan


This page offers an overview of those images discussed in the course lectures that are available via the WWW. When activated, the links below will open in a separate window: as you proceed through the list, this should allow you to compare the different images by using the "Back" and "Forward" buttons on your browser. You should configure the size and location of the two windows as best suits your particular monitor.

The majority of these links are to the Perseus WWW site. Links to other WWW sites with relevant material have also been provided.

Unfortunately, many of images to be discussed in class are not available for public access via the Perseus WWW site. In many cases, however, Perseus will offer a general account of the vase in question.
