Marek Tycjan Olszewski (1962–2024)

We were saddened by the death of Dr. Marek Tycjan Olszewski, archaeologist, expert in ancient art, assistant professor at the Faculty of Archaeology, University of Warsaw.

Marek Tycjan Olszewski was particularly interested in the study of visual arts in Greco-Roman culture, especially mosaic representations, the interpretation of which he devoted many scientific works. Among other things, he analysed the mosaics discovered during Polish research at Nea Paphos in Cyprus, where he took part in the research of the PCMA UW expedition in 1981. In recent years, one of his projects involved the mosaics discovered at Kom el-Dikka in Alexandria, which he visited recently, in 2022.
