Princesses of the Mediterranean
Athens Museum of Cycladic Art

The new exhibition to come to the Athens Museum of Cycladic Art is the Princesses of the Mediterranean at the Dawn of History. This is a gathering of relics belonging to women from around the Iron Age from 10th to 5th century BCE, which should be an engaging and inspiring exhibit.

Princesses of the Mediterranean at the Dawn of History is a new show organized by the Athens Museum of Cycladic Art, in collaboration with the University of Crete and the Ministry of Public Education and Culture.

For the first time the exhibit will educate the public on the role of Mediterranean women, princesses, aristocrats, priestesses, therapists and sorceresses; women of culture and prestige in the first Iron Age, from the 10th to the 5th centuries BC.

On view from December 13 to April 10, the show is being held under the patronage of Greek President Karolos Papoulias and Italian President Giorgio Napolitano.
