Paul Wolters

Paul Heinrich August Wolters (1 September 1858 in Bonn – 21 October 1936 in Munich) was a German classical archaeologist who specialized in ancient Greek and Roman art. He was the son of theologian Albrecht Wolters (1822–1878).

He studied classical philology and archaeology at the Universities of Halle, Strasbourg and Bonn, obtaining his PhD in 1882. By way of a scholarship from the German Archaeological Institute (DAI), he took a study trip to Italy, Greece and Asia Minor (1885–1887). From 1900 to 1908, he was a professor at the University of Würzburg, and in 1908, succeeded Adolf Furtwangler as professor of classical archaeology at the University of Munich. Here, he was also director of the Glyptothek Museum. Among his better known students was archaeologist Ernst Buschor.

In 1888/89, he performed excavatory work at the Kabeirion of Thebes, a rural sanctuary containing temples and theaters. In 1925, with Gabriel Welter, he conducted an archaeological excavation at Aegina Kolonna. Provided by Wikipedia
