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).
