Museum Aigina

The small, but beautiful museum of Aigina is exclusively dedicated to the prehistoric, classical and post-classical finds of the island. For example, there are a number of beautiful prehistoric vases, with images of ships and a dancer (?). But we also see beautifully decorated proto-Corinthian vases, including one decorated with an image of Odysseus, who, hanging under the belly of a sheep, tries to escape the Cyclops (approx. 600 B.C.). Attic black-figure pottery is also exposed, often fragmentary (including a beautiful sphinx and an equally beautiful lion (approx. 550 B.C.), a classical sphinx, used as a grave monument, other (classical) tombstones, inscriptions and so on.
