Archaeological Museum of Palaiopolis - Overview
The Archaeological Collection of Palaiopolis was established in 2003 and it is housed
in a building erected in 1981, donated to the Community of Palaiopolis by the Basil and Eliza Goulandris Foundation.
Its collection comprises mainly the finds - statues, reliefs, inscriptions and coins - dated to the ancient Greek,
Roman and Protobyzantine times from the ancient city of Andros (contemporary Palaeopolis).
Among the most important exhibits are:
Marble sculptural complex representing Pegasus, the mythical winged horse, with its rider, Vellerophon.
This was an architectural sculpture, part of the decoration of a building, probably the acroterion of a temple and is
dated to the end of the 6th or the beginning of the 5th century BC.
Marble lion in natural size. Funerary statue found at the cemetery of ancient Andros (Palaiopolis). Dated to ca. 320 BC.
Inscribed marble slab. It preserves 178 verses of the hymn to Isis, who is praised as a goddess of the earth, the sky and the sea,
and as the inventor of sailing. Dated to the 1st century BC.
Marble statuette of Artemis, dated to the Hellenistic period (3rd century BC).
