Archaeological Collection of Galaxidi - Overview

   The building that now houses the archaeological collection of Galaxidi was constructed in the 1830's and until 1870 it functioned as a carpet industry where the sailors' wives were occupied. Later it housed the Municipality of Galaxidi and in 1932, the Maritime Gallery of the town. In 1979 the finds from the area of Galaxidi were transferred from the Museum of Delphi to the Maritime and Historical Museum of Galaxidi and were exhibited in one of its halls.
   The archaeological collection includes finds from Galaxidi and the adjacent areas as well as items raised from the sea.

   Some of the most important exhibits are:
- Early Helladic hydria (water jar) found in the area of a shipwreck, in the sea off Galaxidi.
- Red-figure pelike. It bears painted representations on both sides: a man and a youth are depicted on one side, a woman and a youth on the other. The work is attributed to the Syrakousae painter.
- Bronze folded mirror bearing the relief representation of a woman's head.
