Sakis Doylas sells exquisite handmade and hand-painted ceramic bowls and urns, fashioned after finds in Ancient Olympia; the glazes and colors are beautiful.

A true artist

Most of the copies one buys of ancient Greek ceramics are now made in China. Ancient Olympia, however, houses the workshop of Sakis Doylas, one of the few---and one of the best---copyists working today in Greece. His shop is called Atelier Exekias, and it's well worth a visit if you are in Ancient Olympia. Mr. Doylas is an artist of considerable talent and the pieces he produces are far superior to anything you will find in any of the numerous gift

shops throughout Greece.
