Archaeological Museum of Ioulis
Artifacts from the island’s most important archaeological site, Karthaia, can be viewed at this museum. Karthaia was first settled during the Late Bronze period, but it peaked in the Classical period. The temple of Athena and an ancient theater was discovered by a French expedition in the early 20th century and is now exhibited here. The museum houses a collection of historical times from the 7thcentury BC to 2ndcentury AD, with pottery, coins, sculpture and inscriptions from ancient Kea. There are also findings from the Neolithic settlement of Kefala and the Bronze age settlement of Agia Irini.
