This volume presents the proceedings of a conference hosted by  the American School of Classical Studies, Athens and the  Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, Athens in 2004. There are  additional contributions from Patricia Butz, Robin Osborne,  Katherine Schwab, Justin St. P. Walsh, Hilda Westervelt and  Lorenz Winkler-Horacek. The contents are divided into four  sections  I. Structure and Ornament; II. Technique and Agency;  III. Myth and Narrative and IV. Diffusion and Influence.  Highlights include Robin Osbornes discussion of What you can do  with a chariot but can't do with a satyr on a Greek temple; Ralf  von den Hoffs consideration of the Athenian treasury at Delphi;  and Katherine Schwabs presentation of New evidence for Parthenon  east metope 14. The papers not only cover a great variety of  issues in architectural sculpture but also present a range of  case studies from all over the Greek world. The result is an  important collection of current research.
