Some finds from the museum on Sitia

It feels like very village, no matter how small it is, have a museum in this country. Here's some shots from the local museum in Sitia on Crete.

Detail of a Pithos, depicting a gorgons head?

The Pithos mentioned above, full view.

A sarcophagus, most likely Minoan. I really like the octopus decoration.

A small flask from Itanos. I can't give you an exact dating or provenance but I am quite sure that it originate from some Phoenician settlement.
