Product Description

Overall dimensions of print: Including blank margins: 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches --- 1 inch = 2,54 cm --- Type of paper: heavier, matte finish --- Artist: Albert Racinet --- Publisher: Imp. Firmin Didot --- Legend to the illustrations in the print: 1 and 6 Greeks wearing the chlamys, the standard garment of the young people of Athens. This was made from a rectangle of material, but falls in triangular points. The chlamys could be worn in a variety of ways. In 1 it is held by a brooch at the right shoulder so that the left arm is covered while the right arm remains free. In 6 it is fixed on the chest, almost at the throat, and thrown back over the shoulders. Both men are wearing hats from Thessaly at the back of their necks, indicating that that they are travellers. One wears felt shoes that go half way up his leg, while the man in 6 is a messenger, carrying a caduceus and wearing leggings rather than shoes. 2 A woman wrapped in a light pallium. 3 A man wearing a podere underneath a pallium. 4 A woman wearing two exterior belts, the strophion and the zona. 5 The catastictos or zodiote. This was a robe of many colours, "spotted like the coat of the panther". 7 A pallium, the famous overgarment that Homer assigned to gods and heroes and named the pharos. In his poems the pharos is sometimes described as brilliant white and sometimes as brightly colored. Bottom Panel: Various helmets are depicted here. Figures 8, 10, 12, 13,16, and 18 are the helmets that are closest to the ancient types depicted by the historian Homer. 20 A helmet found at Tivoli, italy in the Hadrian's villa, supposedly belonging to Menelas. 15. This helmet was a trophy of Emperor Augustus. 11 and 33 are helmets that resembles ones depicted in ancient Greek medallions with the exception of the protecting visor. These were made of bronze and found at Pompeii. 14, 17, 19 and 21 These illustrations depict various Greek helmets of a typical round shape.
