Plan of the South Nekropolis in the Sanctuary of the Great Gods, Samothrace
When The Nekropoleis, volume 11 of the series, Samothrace. Excavations Conducted by the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University, was published in 1998 by Princeton University Press, it did not include a plan of the important nekropolis to the south of the Sanctuary. 1 Within the catalogue of tombs, the author, Elsbeth Dusenbery, refers to grid squares that she calls sections, which clearly indicate a topographic system of recording for this burial region. However, neither the grid system nor the tombs are anchored geographically to the site. The diaries of the excavation of the South Nekropolis did not contain the plan, nor was a copy preserved in the Samothrace Archives at the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University.
