Noviodunum IV

German, summaries in French and in English, Cahiers d’archéologie romande, N°92, Lausanne, scientific publication (142 p.), 2002.

Die vorliegende Arbeit über die figürliche Plastik von Nyon („CSIR Schweiz“, Bd. I, 4: Colonia Iulia Equestris) entstand zwischen Dezember 1997 und Mai 1999 innerhalb eines bis ins Jahr 2000 dauernden Projekts des Schweizerischen Nationalfonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung. Dieses beinhaltete die Fertigstellung der schweizerischen CSIR (Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani)- Bände. Die hier aufgearbeiteten 39 erhaltenen und verlorenen Skulpturen vermitteln eine gute, wenn auch unvollständige Vorstellung vom pulsierenden Leben in der einst blühenden Koloniestadt Iulia Equestris. An einen ausführlichen Katalog schliesst eine Synthese an, in der auf Datierungsgrundlagen, Werkstattfragen, kunst-geschichtliche Einordnung, Aufstellungsfragen und mögliche Auftraggeber eingegangen wird. 

English summary: The corpus of 39 items is being analysed and studied exhaustively. Many of the pieces, in marble or local limestone, are of a very high artistic standard. Several of the marble pieces were imported from Italian workshops. Local production, which often took its inspiration from Mediterranean models, testifies to very considerable expertise. Petrographic analyses by the Natural History Museum of Geneva complete the study. The corpus contains examples of the architectural ornamentation of the forum, ornamental statuary (private gardens or official environments), and haut-reliefs from unidentified religious or funerary monuments.
