The collection covers the period 1923-1955, and includes images from her travels in Greece, Turkey and Italy. In addition to the archaeological information, the collection is a mosaic of information about architecture, landscapes and customs that no longer exist.

Historical Photos - Various photographs from the archives in the Gennadius Library documenting moments of Greek history, from the late 19th to the early 20th century. Photos are collected from the Dragoumis family, the papers of Athanasios Souliotis, Nikolaos Mavris and others, as well as from the papers of author Stratis Myrivilis who fought in the Balkan Wars and the Greek-Turkish War (1919-1922).
Ion Dragoumis Letters - Letters of diplomat and Greek Parliament member Ion St. Dragoumis, covering the period 1895-1920. The Macedonian struggle, the Balkans and the Ottoman Empire, the Greek language and the use of the Demotic, are some of the issues that appear in Dragoumis’ correspondence.
|Description||Pit (6x10) in the valley between the Areopagus and the Hill of the Nymphs. Large cutting in bedrock with 540 ostraka, mainly of the late eighties of the 5th. c. B. C. Much pottery, principally of the early 5th. c., but with some as late as the middle, at which time the fill was dumped.|
Originally, 605 pieces were found; of these 440 were catalogued in the Agora and reduced by joins to 438, and 165 uncatalogued, as being too fragmentary to be significant (Agora XXV, p. 25). During October 2018, 470 objects were found in this deposit, of these 406 were ostraka.
This deposit needs more work: check notebooks and data base to make sure all ostraka are recorded in both sources. (PF)
Check grid again, different in notebook. (Dec. 2017)
21-25 October 1949
