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.
