I had a chance to spend two entire weeks in Athens last November. Apart from studying at the Italian, British and American libraries, I also visited the Byzantine and Christian Museum, that has a good collection of Early Byzantine pottery and silverware. The collection was noted by Sebastian Heath, who used to keep a review of such resources on one of his blogs.
