Rhodes and the Dodecanese Sights

Archaeological Museum

Updated 08/01/2014

Fodor's Review

The island's archaeological museum houses Hellenistic and Roman sculpture by Koan artists, much of it unearthed by Italians during their tenure on the island in the early 20th century. Among the treasures are a renowned statue of Hippocrates—the great physician who practiced on Kos—and Asclepius, god of healing; a group of sculptures from various Roman phases, all discovered in the House of the Europa Mosaic; and a remarkable series of Hellenistic draped female statues

mainly from the Sanctuary of Demeter at Kyparissi and the Odeon.
