I have been visiting the Archaeological Museum in Istanbul almost every year for the past 15 years, and have always been impressed by the quality of the collection and the impressive way the many, many objects are displayed. However, for years there was a fence in the East wing, shortly after the great sarcophagi from Sidon. From time to time I would peek across it, and always it was “work in progress”. Then, for me in December 2007, the fence had gone, and instead I walked into a magnificent display of mainly wonderful Roman sarcophagi (and first some antropomorphic sarcophagi from Sidon and other spots). I here present many pictures of them, as well as details of some Greek temples that are also shown in this area.

The lighting situation was effective for viewing, but left me with a problem in the sense that spotlights produce harsh contrasts, and the use of several types of lighting created colours that I could not always filter out. So the colours you see here will not always be true. I went for clarity of picture and a decent composition. I added pictures in 2009 - with different colours because I found that I could hardly better the results of the D3 camera straight out of camera. Some show more of the artificial light than earlier versions.
