The Museum recently acquired 13 plaster cast busts (1982.10.0001, 1982.10.0003, 2017.02.0001-0011) from the University’s Classics Library. Many of the busts, including those of Grecian physician Hippocrates and Roman statesman/general/architect Marcus Agrippa, are part of the University’s founding collection of plaster casts collected by President John Milton Gregory in 1874.
Now fully cleaned, these plaster busts are ready for long-term preservation, future study and exhibition.
