The main aim of this article is to examine Franciscus Hemsterhuis’ Lettre sur une pierre antique (1762) in the light of Caylus’ Recueil d’Antiquités (1752-1767). This comparison is intended to show the assimilation of scientific criteria in Hemsterhuis’ “inspectionµ of an ancient gem, highlighting the intersection between erudite and critical concerns in the study of antiquities.
