I found some pictures from 2003 that I took at the Museum of Oriental Antiquities, a part of the Archaeological Museum complex. Only in some cases will I be able to add comments (later), since I did not take many notes. Knowledgeable people will recognize the different styles, I presume, for the general public: these things are very old, mostly well before 0 AD. There is a politically correct phrase for that date, but I forgot, not living in the USA.

This is the entrance to this particular museum, to the left you see the entrance to the whole complex. If you ever get there, don't forget to cross the road to the old "mint" which sometimes presents fine exhibitions also.
