THE MYCENEAN SANCTUARY

THE MYCENEAN SANCTUARY

A prominent Greek archeologist, Eleni Konstolakis Giannopoulou, worked on excavating this site. The excavation revealed the existence of a Mycenean temple that dates from somewhere between 1600-1200 BC, along with numerous clay figurines and objects depicting chariots, riders, furniture and more. The site also revealed a graveyard for children and other significant objects such as a rhyton (conical drinking jug) with an end that was shaped like the head of a pig. Several of these objects can be seen in the Archeological Museum of Poros which is half an hour away from Methana. While not well documented, the site is considered an important one in revealing the region’s history.
