The Mykonos Mu­nic­i­pal Art Gallery is host­ing “The Fall of Troy: The Mykonos Vase and the He­roes of Eleuth­erna.” The ex­hi­bi­tion fo­cuses on a fu­neral vase dat­ing to ap­prox­i­mately 670 BC, which was dis­cov­ered in a house on the Cy­cladic is­land in 1961 and came to be known as the Mykonos Vase. The ar­ti­fact is on dis­play at the is­land’s Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Mu­seum. The dis­play, which runs through Septem­ber 11, is a cur­tain-raiser for “Homer in the Aegean,” an ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brat­ing the splen­did ar­ti­fact and the dis­cov­ery of stone shield-bear­ing war­riors in Eleuth­erna in Crete, which is sched­uled to take place next year.
