Item description for Between Orient and Occident: Studies in Honour of P.J. Riis by John Lund...

For more than two generations P.J. Riis has played a leading role in Danish Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology. This volume contains fifteen essays dedicated to him with their respect and their thanks, by former colleagues, collaborators and students, who are - or were- associated with the Danish National Museum or its research unit, The Carlsberg Expeditions to Phoenicia. The authors cover a kaleidoscopic range of topics, which reflect the scope of Riis' own research: between Orient and Occident - past and present. Text mostly in English - one article in German, one article in French. Contents: Hama in the Middle Bronze Age: a New Interpretation (Ingolf Thuesen); Creating a Divine Image: the Case of Juno Sospita (Kristina Winther Jacobsen); A Second Metamorphosis of Arethusa (Helle Winge Horsns); Herakles Holding the Horn of Acheloos - Bronze Statuettes in the Danish National Museum (Helle Salskov Roberts); Transport Amphorae as Evidence of Exportation of Italian Wine and Oil to the Eastern Mediterranean in the Hellenistic Period (John Lund); Danish Archaeology in Carthage, Tunisia (Sren Dietz); Temple, glise, mosque. Autour de la Mosque des Omeyyades Damas (Thomas Riis); A Chair from Hama in Boyk, Turkey (Peter Pentz); Twelve Roman Caesars en Mdaillons (Bodil Bundgaard Rasmussen); The Egyptianising Motifs of Johannes Wiedewelt's Dactyliotheca (Anne Haslund Hansen); A Tale of Pots and Politics (Inge Schjellerup); Von C.J. Thomsen zu P.J. Riis - Ausstellung und Wissen ber europische Medaillen in Kopenhagen (Jrgen Steen Jensen); Hama revisited: A Syrian Town in the 1930's and Today (Alexandra Nilsson); From Study Collection to Museum of Ancient Art: a Danish University Museum of Mediterranean Antiquities and Plaster Casts (Pia Guldager Bilde); Poul Jrgen Riis - A Bibiliography (Flemming Gorm Andersen).
