Portable Antiquities is Portable Antiquities

Richard died in 1992, at the age of 82. He’d had a lifetime devotion and study and collection of antiquities, but his interest finally focused on brooches and, with the help of detectorists, he rapidly built an important collection [...]. In 1973 he started a collection of Greek vases [...] He wrote several learned articles on his vases and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He sold his entire collection in 1982 … and started to collect brooches.
