- Curator's comments
- Drawing from a collection of around 200 works on paper by the architects Samuel Angell and William Harris, relating to their trip and excavations on Sicily in 1822-1823. They visited Syracuse and Agrigento before travelling to Selinunte where, after finding archaic metopes, they started excavating and recording the temples and sculptures for future publication. Harris died in Selinunte in July 1823. Angell published their findings in 1826. For a brief overview see C. Marconi (2007) 'Temple Decoration and Cultural Identity in the Archaic Greek World: The Metopes of Selinus,' CUP: 133-134.
Handwritten notes by Angell and Harris regarding temple D are kept together with the drawings.
