    Worcester Art Museum has collected Greek and Roman art from its founding in 1898 and has a small but distinguished selection of objects that range from large-scale Greek marble reliefs and black- and red-figure vases of the Classical (Rycroft Painter) amphora, an unusual Cypriot sculpture (Head of Aphrodite) as well as a variety of ancient glass found in the Troad, hundreds of Greek and Roman coins (nearly 100 from the Antioch mint) and rare Roman imperial portraits (Caligula). The Roman floor mosaics excavated in Antioch are the finest and largest of any US collection.
