About Archaeology in Patmos

If you’re looking for archaeological sites that not only span the eras but also offer unique places for exploration, Patmos is the ideal location for you. This island’s archaeological record spans millennia, beginning in Prehistoric times through the Middle Ages.

Patmos also plays a role in literature, in the Odyssey and Aeschylus’ and Euripides’ plays, as Patmos is believed to be the place where Orestes sought refuge. Patmos played a key commercial, political and religious role in Antiquity and throughout the Byzantine era through Ottoman and Venetian occupation.
