She co-authored Czechoslovak (and later Czech) series of the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum, and final publications of the excavations at Cymae and Samothrace. Further she co-authored exhibition catalogues for the Gallery of Ancient Art in Hostinné and Museum of Ancient Sculpture and Architecture in Litomyšl. Together with prof.
