This book has benefited from much discussion, advice and support from scholars and friends, among whom I would particularly like to thank Mathieu de Bakker, Josine Blok, Herman Brijder, Vinzenz Brinkmann, Giorgos Despinis†, Floris van den Eijnde, Evelyn Harrison†, Emily Hemelrijk, Jaap Hemelrijk, Mark Janse, Catherine Keesling, Bram Kempers, Ron Leenheer, Marion Meyer, Eric Moormann, Aliki Moustaka, Onno van Nijf, Winfred van de Put, Albert Rijksbaron, Michael Scott, Peter Schultz, Ulrich Sinn, Vladimir Stissi, Folkert van Straten and Jutta Stroszeck. The curators and staff of Athenian museums have been infinitely supportive at my endless requests to see the sculpture in their care. I want to express my warmest gratitude to K. Kissas, A. Mantis, I. Trianti and Chr. Vlassopoulou at the Akropolis Museum; J. Camp, A. Choremi, S. Dumont, J. Jordan, A. Lazaridi and C. Mauzy at the Agora Museum and site; Ch. Kritsas, A. Themos and M. Tsouli of the Epigraphic Museum; I. Touratsoglou and M. Salta at the National Archaeological Museum; and Th. Kyriakou and L. Parlama of the Kerameikos site and museum. My thanks also go to those at the Akropolis Museum, the Agora Museum and the Epigraphic Museum who helped me obtain permission to reproduce images of their collections.
The staff of the Netherlands Institute at Athens, the libraries of the British School at Athens and the Scuola Italiana di Atene have been ever supportive. At Peter Lang, commissioning editor Laurel Plapp and Cultural Interactions series editor Barrie Bullen have put much appreciated effort in guiding me and the book through the stages of publication, offering excellent practical and scholarly advice. My gratitude also goes to the anonymous reviewers for their time in reading and improving the manuscript; naturally, responsibility for any remaining errors lies entirely with me.
There are many friends and family members without whose encouragement this study would not have been completed.

A continuous source of support over the years, from scholarly advice to general cheering up, was and is my family, Majola Hochscheid-Mabesoone, Doris Hochscheid, Oda Hochscheid, Rolf Hochscheid, Barbara Cook, Brenda Burke, Frans van Ruth, Franco Tabiadon, Adelisa Tabiadon and Chriesta and Edmond Langezaal. Most crucial to the completion of this book and to life in general are my husband Michael Burke (without whom there would be no Networks of Stone) and our kids Oscar and Louisa. For being the sweetest, brightest and most wonderful people in the world, I dedicate this book to you.
