Cycladic Snapshots: Men and Monuments

On now until 28 February 2018 at the Byzantine & Christian Museum in Athens, is an exhibition of never before exposed Cycladic treasures; Cycladic Snapshots. Men and Monuments.

This exhibition presents the people who have worked to uncover, protect and promote archaeological excavations in the Cycladic islands from the late 19th century to the present.

The narrative moves chronologically, starting from the first excavations on the islands of Delos and Rhenea where a splendid ancient sanctuary and bustling harbor was discovered.

Many of the archaeological finds and treasures are being exhibited for the first time in Athens including an exceptional mural from the House of Dionysus and an icon made in the Byzantine style by El Greco that was unexpectedly discovered on Syros in 1983.

The exhibition is organised by the Cyclades Ephorate of Antiquities in cooperation with the French School at Athens and the Byzantine and Christian Museum.

Exhibition opening hours:
