Ancient Cycladic Jewelry on Display at Mykonos Museum

vanity: mykonos museumA display of Cycladic jewelry from Neolithic times to present is on display at the renovated Archaeological Museum of Mykonos.

The exhibit shows beautiful artifacts dating back as far as 4th millennium BC, including costume or decorative jewelry as well as pieces that were used as offerings at sanctuaries, such as Delos.

Many of the pieces have never been on display before now, and are hoped to draw in a big crowd from locals and tourists alike.

“Through this exhibition, the ephorate’s aim, besides everything else, was to relaunch the renovated Archaeological Museum of Mykonos as the center of the Cycladic islands, as well as a place to visit for those coming to the island,” commented ephorate chief and coordinator of the event, Dimitris Athanasoulis, as published on ekathimerini.com.

The exhibit will remain on display for a year at the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos before traveling to other museums in the Cyclades.
