Archaeological Museum of Amfissa

Archaeological findings from all over Phocis, but also an important monetary collection you can see to the newly created Archaeological Museum of Amfissa, inaugurated in 2004.

The exhibits cover a long period, from the Bronze Age until the early Byzantine and presented on the ground floor, the first floor or in the courtyard of the Archaeological Museum of Amfissa. The statue of Persephone by Kallio and the collection of terracotta heads with different hairstyles from Amfissa stand out on its showcase.

The monetary collection housed on the first floor, at a specially designed area of the Archaeological Museum of Amfissa. It includes pre – coin money from the pre-Hellenic coins, from Romans, Byzantines, Venetians and Frank, but from the beginning of the New Greek state, up to the modern euro. It relies mainly on monetary collection of the researcher Drossos Kravartogiannos that he donated to the Archaeological Museum of Amfissa.

The building of the Archaeological Museum of Amfissa is from the beginning of the 20th century, a typical example of a two storey urban house of the period. It is located in the city center, in the area that was in 1821 the first National Assembly of the Eastern Terrestrial Greece. In the courtyard of the exposed collection of inscriptions, it functions a maintenance workshop of antiquities.
