Friedrich Wieseler (1811-1892)

Friedrich Wieseler (19 October 1811 in Altencelle – 3 December 1892, Göttingen) was a German classical archaeologist and philologist.

He studied classical philology at the University of Göttingen, where he was a disciple of Karl Otfried Müller (1797-1840). Afterwards, he lived as a private scholar in Berlin, where he attended lectures by August Boeckh (1785-1867). In 1837 he received his doctorate from the University of Jena, later becoming an associate professor at Göttingen (1842). Here, he also served as a supervisor of the archaeological and numismatic collections. In 1854 he became a full professor, and from 1869, he was a member of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences.


Wieseler was the author of well-regarded works on ancient Greek and Roman theatre, as well as papers involving figures from classical mythology. In the field of archaeology, he continued Muller's Denkmäler der alten Kunst ("Monuments of ancient art").
