The CBd
About us

The Campbell Bonner Magical Gems Database (CBd) was created and is maintained
by the Collection of Classical Antiquities of the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest.  

Until December 2020 the work of the CBd-team in Budapest was headed by Árpád M. Nagy, complemented
by CBd’s Fribourg-branch, supervised by Véronique Dasen.

CBd was edited by
     Katalin Bélyácz      
     Kata Endreffy
     Árpád M. Nagy
