The vast Castellani collection of ancient Greek pottery, now housed in the Villa Giulia Museum in Rome, has been studied by several scholars, notably Paolo Mingazzini who published part of the collection. A great deal, however, especially fragments and fragmentary pieces, remains unpublished. The aim of the publication of the Athenian Black Figure fragments is to make this important material available to all students of Greek pottery. Each piece in the publication is illustrated and described. There are a number of important pieces among them, and the fragments as a whole add to the knowledge of Athenian Black Figure pottery since the picture is distorted without them. The first volume by Lise Hannestad dealt with cups: kylikes, skyphoi, kyathoi, and mastoids. The second volume emphasises the closed vessels: amphorae, jugs, lekythoi, hydriai, craters, and dinoi.
