Jean-Baptiste Grosson, after studies of right, became royal notary. Cultivated man, it undertook, for his pleasure, of the studies of Archéologie. It was interested much in the history of its birthplace, and published 1770 with 1791 the historical Almanach of Marseilles .
It is especially known for its work “ Recueil of antiquities and the Marseilles monuments which can interest the history and arts ”, published in 1773. It does not deserve the sarcastic remarks whose Augustin Fabre in his book " overpowers it; Historical note on the old streets of Marseille" where he says: always surface, it in its adventurous imagination than in realities of the history and science that it (Grosson) is rather done its discoveries archéologiques." (cf P. 59,74 and 87). Michel Clerc in his Massalia book volume 1 p. 210 comments on the origins of the sculpture Aphrodite to the dove described in the collection and gives his appreciation on work of Grosson.
