Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Athens: the Pnyx, bema, near view".
Notes Latest date of image is based on its possible inclusion in the 1897 slide catalogue. The image on the negative is smaller than BSA SPHS 01/1339.3411.1 (marked originally as 3411a) from which it was duplicated. The image on this negative measures 3 x 2.5cm, so may have been created for a smaller format, possibly a 35mm slide. The negative is marked as 3411b. This is the same photograph as BSA SPHS 01/4344.8956, an English Photographic Company image. Note that the number in the left foreground is 1842 which is scratched out in BSA SPHS 01/1339.3411.1. The image appears in SPHS Slide Set by J. Penoyre (ca. 1926) Ancient Greek Life, slide number 12.
