Comments

From the book: "The Syrian Arab Republic, one of the historically richest countries in western Asia, may well claim the title of '"cradle of human civilisation"'. The national museum at Damascus houses the most important collection of the country's cultural heritage. The present catalogue is a product of a Syro-European cooperation and resumes the endeavours of Selim and Andrée Addul-Hak, the former director and keeper of antiquities of the Greek and Roman Department: "'To make detailed descriptions of each object available to archaeologists and historians in order to eventually serve more detailed studies"'.
