Carved from the same marble as that used to build the Parthenon, this larger-than-life sculpture was discovered by chance by a young archaeologist walking the cliffs on the coast of western Turkey near the ancient city of Knidos. This concise illustrated book unfolds the story of that discovery and of Knidos in the days of its greatness, and tells how the pioneering archaeologists of 150 years ago excavated and explored its site, discovering many treasures of the ancient world, including the Lion itself. The story is brought up to date with a brief account of the British Museums current excavations at the site.
