Library of Antiquity
The collections of this library are associated with the Department of Antiquity and the library itself is subdivided into three large sections:
- Egypt (pre-pharaonic and pharaonic Egypt, papyrology and Coptic studies);
- the Old Near East (Assyria and Iran);
- Classical Antiquity (Greece, Etruria and Rome).
The catalogue can be consulted via the ALEPH library system and are part of LIBIS-Net, Belgium’s largest library network.
