ANGELIKA HUDLER (University of Vienna, Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies), „Academic, Collector, Private Person. Athanasios S. Rousopoulos (1823–1898) and (His) Greek Antiquities“
In the attempt to retrace the emergence of archaeological museums and antiquities displays in 19thcentury
Athens, one can quickly discern private collectors as a significant factor. Still, apart from
acknowledging the fact that large quantities of archaeological artifacts were kept as personal items,
their biographies are rarely studied in detail. As an approach for encountering this private level of
antiquities management, this presentation will portray one protagonist: Athanasios S. Rousopoulos.
Aspects of his academic career, of his role as a collector and salesman of antiquities, and of his private
life will be approximated by analyzing archival sources from Athens and Vienna.
