Type of Operation
Ministry of Culture (National Archaeological Museum, Athens)
Gyros. E. Kourinou (National Archaeological Museum) presents archival evidence which indicates that the 7thCt BC seated statue (ANM 57) long assigned to the Sanctuary of Demeter near Agiorgitika instead probably came from the Sanctuary of Artemis at Gyros, near Mouchli, E of Agiorgitika in the W foothills of Mt Ktenias, partially excavated by V. Bérard in 1889. Documents here reproduced include lists of Bérard’s finds and of items from the sanctuary confiscated from a local smuggler.
