Becker Wilhelm Adolf

Becker, Wilhelm Adolf, the son of a distinguished archaeologist, was born at Dresden in 1796. He followed in his father's footsteps and became professor in the university of Leipzig. His two clever books, Charicles and Gallus, descriptive of Greek and Roman life respectively, are still appreciated. His Handbook of Roman Antiquities was completed after his death in 1846 by Marquardt.
