The sanctuaries of ancient Kythnos

The research conducted the past thirty years in the ancient capital of the Cycladic island of Kythnos (today called Vryokastro) has significantly enriched our knowledge about the material culture and the history of the island. The present book focuses on the sanctuaries of the ancient town and summarises the data deriving both from the systematic survey and excavations of the site, thus casting significant light to the sanctuaries and cults of the Kythnians, including those of Apollo and Artemis, Demeter, Aphrodite, Asclepios and the Samothracian Gods.
