Archaeological Museum of Mytilene

Archaeological Museum of Mytilene Review

Set in a 1912 neoclassic mansion, this archaeological museum displays finds from the Neolithic through the Roman eras, a period of 5,000 years. A garden in the back displays the famous 6th-century Aeolian capitals from the columns of Klopedi's temples. The museum's modern "wing," in a separate building, contains finds from prehistoric Thermi, mosaics from Hellenistic houses, reliefs of comic scenes from the 3rd-century Roman house of Menander, and temporary exhibits.
