MC:F53/MS3 Papers relating to archaeological site at Baiae
MC:F53/MS3/1 c. 1969
Envelope titled “ANTRUM at Baia” containing notes, drawings and maps of the Great Antrum, a religious site at the old Roman town of Baiae (modern Baia). According to a note on the front of the envelope, it contains “photocopies of documents sent to Nicholas Horsfall with letter of Jan.6.1992 to 10 Via Roma Libera, Scala A. Int 26, ROMA 00153, ITALY.” However, there appears to be no copy of that letter in this collection. Most of these documents appear to be notes for a paper which Hardie published in the journal Papers of the British School at Rome vol. 37, 1969, entitled “the Great Antrum at Baiae” (http://www.jstor.org/stable/40310670).
The papers include a letter to Hardie in Italian from Alfonso de Franciscis (address: Il Soprintendente alle Antichità, 80135 Napoli, addressed to Magdalen), Superintendent of Antiquities at Naples, dated 28 July 1973. De Franciscis regrets that his reply to a previous letter of Hardie’s did not arrive. He thanks Hardie for his interest in Baiae and his suggestions on the organisation of the site. There is also a drawing of a graffito found on a wall inside the Antrum, which Hardie believes to be dateable to the consulship of Quintus Marcius Philippus (186 BC). His reasoning can be found on p.28 of the article on the site (see link above). [14 items].
