Archaeological Museum in Milos
The Archaeological Museum in Milos is housed in the neoclassical Ziller building, built in 1870 and is located in Plaka. In the central hall of the Archaeological museum there is the impressive statue of Aphrodite, which is a copy of the original and comes from the laboratories of Louvre Museum.
In the same room there is a funerary jar from the 6th century BC, a statue of the 3rd century BC, a leg of Trapezoforos with lion's head and a half female statue. In the left section of the room there is a showcase filled with obsidian pieces, tools, knives, arrowheads and spearheads. These findings come from Phylakopi, Nyhia and Demenagaki.
In the museum there are also exhibits indicating the development of arts and culture of the ancient Klima. Of unique beauty is the head with a typical polishing on the face and the embossed tombstone representing a young servant, dating from the 3rd century BC.
On the island have been found and are displayed in the museum, archaic plates with the Milian alphabet consisting of 21letters. We meet showcases with excavations from ancient Phylakopi, many vases with painted lilies, figurines from the sanctuaries of Phylakopi IV, and the famous "Madam of Phylakopi". Here we will see coins, knives, bronze statuettes of the 5th and 4th century BC, glass and clay jars of the Roman period, as well as reliefs and statuettes of the Hellenistic era.
