Tinos and the Cyclades in the Mycenaean era

An exhibition at the Tinos Museum of Marble Crafts that aims to shed light on the Cycladic contribution to the Mycenaean civilisation in the Aegean.

The Ephorate of Antiquities of the Cyclades in collaboration with the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation organises the periodic exhibition “From the world of Homer. Tinos and the Cyclades in the Mycenaean era”. The exhibition aims to shed light on the Cycladic contribution to the Mycenaean civilisation in the Aegean, by presenting, among other things, antiquities unknown to the public and composes a panorama of the Mycenaean civilisation in the Cyclades. More than 150 select artefacts, representative works of pottery, metalwork, miniature art, figurines and jewellery which reveal facets of the Mycenaean world’s admirable cultural heritage, a source of inspiration for two grand works of world literature, the Iliad and the Odyssey.

(Until 14/10, Tinos Museum of Marble Crafts, Pyrgos, Panormos, Tinos 842 01, T: 22830 31290, www.piop.gr)
