This interest in the monument was recently revived following excavation work at the site in the years between The results of this intense scientific investigation are expected to appear shortly and are mainly concerned with the architectural reconstruction of the monument and the dating of the pottery material unearthed from the altar's foundation.
The work has several aims. First, to provide for the first time in English all the relevant information concerning the altar, from the early excavations and publication to the latest research and forthcoming works Chapter 1 , summaries of the current literature on the frieze's reconstruction and stylistic analysis Chapters Second, it aims to provide the first updated and detailed description of the relief panels Catalogue, vol.
I , since the original publication in the Altertumer von Pergamon, accompanied by rich photographic material vol. Third, the thesis advances several new theories on the reconstruction and interpretation of the sculpted friezes using a combination of iconographic, literary, and historical evidence Chapters Finally, it makes the first attempt to study the artist's technique as an example of Hellenistic aesthetics, and the way the imagery was used by the Attalids to project their own image of self-glorification by a careful study of the political background, the religious context of the monument, its philosophical overtones and artistic strategies Chapter 5.
An evaluation of these theories will be reserved for later in the work, after a more detailed presentation of the monument and its sculptures has been made. Ancient Sources, Discovery, Excavations, Publication Only a few relevant accounts of the altar survive from ancient times and even these are not always clear. The oldest reference to the altar probably appears in John's Book of Revelation.
