John Elliott Classics Museum

This antiquities museum at the University of Tasmania in Hobart is rated as the best such collection in Australia after the Nicholson Museum in the University of Sydney.
The museum was started about 40 years ago by Professor John Elliott, the Professor of Classics, after whom it is named. The collection contains representative examples of the art and culture of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, Greece, Etruria and Rome. Most notable are over 100 Greek vases, many of them fine examples of painted decoration and about 500 ancient coins from the invention of coinage to the end of the Roman Empire.
