The temporary exhibition “Kore of Thera” was inaugurated on September 4, 2022, at the Archaeological Museum of Thera.

The Kore of Thera, a statue of the 7th century BC, came to light in November 2000, during a rescue excavation in the cemetery of the ancient city of Thera, in southeastern Sellada, by the Theran archaeologist Charalambos Sigalas. The supernaturally sized archaic kore of white Naxian marble, 2.48m high, is almost intact. The sculpture, from which only the tip of the nose and the arm of the bent right hand, which rests on the chest, are missing, is one of the few works of the large, stone-formed, prominent early Greek sculpture that have survived to the present day.

The museum will be closed on the following days:
1 January, 25 March, 1 May, Easter Sunday, 25 December, 26 December A statue of the 7th century BC, came to light in November 2000, during a rescue excavation in the cemetery of the ancient city of Thera.
