    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Given their prominent roof-top location, akroteria helped shape the appearance of a building. This study undertakes a careful analysis of the aesthetic and pictorial phenomena of figurative Greek akroteria in their architectonic and historical context. It explores the role of figurative sculptures in shaping and characterizing a building, as well as their significance for the representation of the building owner.
