The Mu­seum of Cy­cladic Art in Athens presents “Crete – Emerg­ing Cities: Aptera, Eleuth­erna, Knos­sos,” an ex­hi­bi­tion il­lus­trat­ing the tra­jec­tory of the three an­cient cities from their ini­tial set­tle­ment and devel­op­ment to their aban­don­ment and re­dis­cov­ery through ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ex­ca­va­tions. Ap­prox­i­mately 500 ar­ti­facts – some newly ex­ca­vated and oth­ers from older digs but all of which are be­ing pre­sented to the pub­lic for the first time – rep­re­sent these three im­por­tant cities of He­catopo­lis (an an­cient name for Crete re­lated to its 100 cities). This is the first time that so many ar­ti­facts have left Crete for a tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tion.
