Archaeological exhibition in Athens on the Cyclades islands of Myceanean-eraA total of 151 artifacts will be displayed, revealing a complete picture of the Mycenaean civilization in the Cyclades archipelago

The archaeological exhibition "From Homer’s World: Tenos and the Cyclades in the Mycenaean Age" will be inaugurated on at 20:00 on Monday at the new Benaki Museum building at 138 Pireos Street in Athens, ANA reports.

Central place is given to finds from the Mycenaean tholos tomb at Agia Thekla on the island of Tinos, a rare funerary monument in the entire Aegean, which was excavated by Georgios Despinis in 1979. The relatively diminutive monument was unearthed during works to build a road. It is one of only three such Mycenaean tombs known in the Cyclades and constitutes the only, until today, confirmed Mycenaean presence on the island. 

Besides Tinos, the exhibition displays finds from other prehistoric sites in the Aegean and specifically from the islands of Naxos, Delos, Paros, Milos, Sifnos, and Kea.

The exhibition was initially presented in the summer of 2019 in Tinos, attracting 23,000 Greek and foreign visitors.
