This volume (with Corinth IX, ii) completes the presentation of the sculptures excavated from the Theater in Ancient Corinth by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Most of the sculptures were discovered during the early campaigns of 1896, 1902-1910, and 1925-1929. Mary Sturgeon's analysis of the findspots leads to a reconstruction of sculptures on the Roman scaenae frons of the second quarter of the 2nd century AD. Her stylistic analysis of the sculptures yields important new information on the subjects, dates, and use of sculptural assemblages in Roman theaters. The inscriptions from the Theater also provide valuable insight into the honoree, patron, and date of the scaenae frons. Corinth's Hadrianic Theater can now be visualized as one of the most prominent and most elaborately decorated monuments in the Roman city.
