NAXOS IRIA CULT DINING IN SANCUARIES

CLICK TO VIEW ACTUAL PHOTO SIZE

The history of cult dining in sanctuaries and the creation of special buildings for this purpose can also be observed at Iria. Here the succession of the early archaic, apsidal building of the rectangular classical and the late Roman ceremonial dining-halls, takes this type of building back to much earlier times than it was known up to nw. With the presentation of the Iria, sanctuary the pioneering contribution of Naxos to the formation of Greek architectural forms can be examined in detail by the scholarly world and understood by the general public. At the same time it provides a unique picture of the unbroken continuity of a high civilisation for over three thousand years in the heart of the Aegean.
