New archaeological finds uncovered at ancient Hephaestia on Limnos
A major temple with finds dating from two main periods – one in the 7th-6th century B.C. and the second in the 3rd-2nd century B.C – was discovered during an archaeological dig at ancient Hephaestia on the Aegean island of Limnos, the state broadcaster ERT reported on Friday. The finds came to light near the ancient city’s theatre, almost as soon as the dig – the first in 20 years – began.
Lesvos Antiquities Ephorate Pavlos Triantafyllidis, in statements to ERT’s Aegean radio, announced that the archaeological, funded by the General Secretariat for the Aegean and Island Policy, will continue. He said that archaeological excavations will be carried out at the Kaveira temple on Limnos and the small island of Agios Efstratios, where there is evidence that a prehistoric settlement existed.
