The Leon Levy and Shelby White Gallery features Hellenistic portraits of marble and bronze, monumental painted terracotta vases from Southern Italy, and architectural fragments from the Temple of Artemis at Sardis, including the massive marble Ionic column and elements of the doorway, porch, and roof.
Sardis was the ancient capital of Lydia, in southwestern Turkey, and its temple to Artemis ranks among the seven largest of all Greek temples.
