frescoes_nestor_palace1_400Abstract
The authors interpret two joining pieces of a brightly colored wall painting found at the Palace of Nestor in 1939. The fragment, removed from the walls of the palace prior to its final destruction, represents part of an archer, probably female. Alternative reconstructions are offered. Artistic methods and constituents of the plaster and paint are studied by XRD, PIXE-alpha analysis, XRF, SEM-EDS, PY/GC-MS, and GC-MS. Egyptian blue pigment was extensively employed. Egg was used as a binder for the pigments in a tempera, rather than a fresco, technique. The identification of individualized painting styles may make it possible to assign groups of wall paintings to particular artists or workshops.
Restudy of the many published and unpublished wall-painting fragments from the Palace of Nestor in Pylos that are stored in the Chora Museum began in 2000.1 By 2002 it was possible to make a full assessment of the corpus and to define directions for future work. In the course of earlier examinations and the systematic arrangement of wall paintings in new storage cabinets, an unpublished piece of special interest was discovered.....

1. A reexamination of the corpus of wall paintings from the Palace of Nestor is part of the program of the Hora Apotheke Reorganization Project (HARP), a series of interrelated research missions that have taken place at Pylos since the completion of the Pylos Regional Archaeological Project in 1996. The project as a whole has been directed by Sharon R. Stocker since 1998. Hariclia Brecoulaki assumed responsibility for the study of the wall paintings in 2000. This paper represents a genuinely collaborative effort on the part of its authors, but individual contributions are credited below as appropriate. We are grateful to James Muhly, former director of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, and to Maria Pilali for facilitating our work in every way.

The constant support that we have received from Xeni Arapoyianni, former director of the Olympia Ephoreia and now director of the Kalamata Ephoreia, and from Yioryia Hatzi, current director of the Olympia Ephoreia, has been critical to the success of this enterprise. We also take pleasure in recognizing the help we have received each year from Evangelia Malapani, Curator of Antiquities in the Kalamata Ephoreia, and the guards of the Chora Museum. Funding in support of the research described here has been provided by the Institute for Aegean Prehistory, the Semple Fund of the Department of Classics of the University of Cincinnati, and, most recently, the American School of Classical Studies, where Brecoulaki was Malcolm H. Wiener Visiting Research Professor (2005–2006). Other publications of HARP include Isaakidou et al. 2002 and Stocker and Davis 2004.
