This book brings together, for the first time, tombstones of the 6th-1st centuries BC from the necropoleis of the Greek colonies of the whole western Black Sea Area (modern-day Bulgaria and Romania). It studies monuments with relief decoration - 98 pieces (from Apollonia, Bizone, Callatis, Dionysopolis, Histria, Mesambria, Naulochos, Odessos and Orgame) are examined and illustrated in a geographically arranged catalogue, which is preceded by a full descussion of typologies, iconography, chronology, compositional elements, material, workshops and production, etc. The book is not merely a case study but also an examination of Greek funerary art in general, offering parallels from mainland Greece, the Greek islands and Asia Minor, and noting general tendencies as well as local peculiarities specific to the western Black Sea.
