The exhibits here offer proof of local civilization from the Palaeolithic Age to later antiquity.
The impressive Archaic-Age (590-580 bc) stone pediment of Artemis Gorgo comes from the west side of the goddess’s great temple at Palaeopolis. Tombstone monuments such as the lion of Menekrates (6th c. bc), funeral gifts, emblematic Archaic-Age statues of young men and women (kouroi and korae respectively), epigraphic art, the Dionysus pediment (a lively scene of a Dionysian symposium), ceramic utensils, coins and Roman-era statuary are expressions of ancient Greek art in its various guises.
