The Walters' outstanding collection of ancient Greek art illustrates the history and culture of Greece from the Cycladic to the Hellenistic period (ca. 3rd millennium–1st century BC). It ranges from engraved gemstones to exceptional vases and marble statues. Ancient Roman art at the Walters includes exquisite Etruscan bronzes and Roman portraits, as well as seven sarcophagi from the tomb of the prominent Licinian and Calpurnian families in Rome.
