The Museum is grateful for the continuing and generous assistance of its network of supporters including the Friends of Antiquity. 

The Friends of Antiquity was established in 1988 as a special interest group of the Alumni Friends of the University of Queensland to support the Classics and Ancient History Department (now the discipline of Classics and Ancient History in the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry). The Friends of Antiquities and the Alumni Friends have assisted the Museum in the purchase of many important artefacts.

These include: 

A Greek South Italian Bronze Helmet (300-200 BC)

An Attic Marble Funerary Stele for Theophile (400-350 BC)

An Egyptian Cartonnage Mummy Mask (390-340 BC)

A Roman Marble Portrait Head of Aphrodite (AD 100-200)

A Roman Marble Memorial Tablet for Secundio (AD 1-100)

An Attic Marble Funerary Loutrophoros for Phanodemos (400-375 BC)

An Attic Terracotta Column Krater (c. 450 BC - pictured above)

The Friends of Antiquity runs a monthly Sunday Series lecture on a topic from the ancient world. They also host the an annual Ancient History Day at the University of Queensland, featuring national and international scholars speaking on a particular theme. Previous Ancient History Days have explored plague filth and garbage in antiquity; ancient food and drink; and ancient myth and magic.
