Biography

Karl Purgold (28 December 1850, in Gotha – 1939, in Gotha) was a German classical archaeologist and museum director.

In 1878 he received his doctorate from the University of Munich, where he was a student of Heinrich Brunn. Following graduation, he travelled the Mediterranean region by way of a grant from the German Archaeological Institute (1878–80). From 1890 until his retirement in 1934 he was director of the Herzogliches Museum Gotha (Ducal Museum in Gotha).

He took part in the excavations at Olympia, Greece, being tasked with providing analysis of ancient inscriptions. With Wilhelm Dittenberger, he edited Die inschriften von Olympia, based on the inscriptions found at Olympia.
