Thomas Burgon (b. 1787 d. 1858 age 71) was a merchant who traded between London, Greece, and Turkey, and Smyrna in particular. He was also a connoisseur of Greek antiquities. During his lifetime he collected and documented over 300 artifacts, many of which are now in the British Museum. To document his collection he created watercolour paintings of his collections, and these have ended up in the Ashmolean Museum, and you will find them available online via this web site.
