Archaeological Museum


  This museum is housed in the "Hospital of the Knights". The building was begun on the insistence of Grand Magistrate Antoine Fluvian (1421-1437) three years following his death (ca. 1460) to be completed in 1489, when Grand Magistrate was Pierre d' Aubusson (1476-1505). The museum houses funeral finds (vases, statuettes, jewellery and metal artifacts) from ancient Ialyssos and ancient Kamiros (Geometric period), while others date from the archaic and classical periods, as for example the collection of sculpture, inlaid floor sections and stellae on the graves of knights.
  Some of the most significant exhibits include:
•Two headless Kouroi (statues of young men) from the archaic period (550-530 B.C.)
•Grave stellae of Krito and Timarista (420-410 B.C.)
•Grave stele of Kalliarista (ca. 350 B.C.)
•Marble statue of nude, squatting Aphrodite (ca. 100 A.D.)
•Kylix of Vroulian style Rhodian workshop. (6th c. B.C.)
