Mykonos Archaeological Museum

  

A page on the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos was added.

This museum was built to house the finds from the island of Rheneia, uninhabited island in front of Delos. As the Athenians prohibited no one to be buried, more exactly to die, on Delos, the Delians had to be buried on Rheneia. So in the museum there are many grave monuments. This photo is one of them; the man evidently died in the sea.
