These are some random pictures that I hope to give a proper place in this gallery (and the galleries within this one), I took them during a December 2007 visit, some in the main building, some in the "new" building. I will add captions later too.

Early 5th century BC. Terracotta alabastron. From the Wikipedia: An alabastron (plural: alabastra or alabastrons) is a type of pottery used in the ancient world for holding oil, especially perfume or massage oils.
