A Swiss-led team of archaeologists in Greece has made a spectacular find: the ancient temple of Artemis, a famous open-air sanctuary of antiquity.Researchers have been looking for the sanctuary for more than a century and the site was finally found at the foot of the Paleoekklisies hill near the small fishing town of Amarynthos on the Greek Island of Euboea.
It’s about 10km from the place where the temple was wrongly thought to be located.
Since 2007, the search for the sanctuary has been led by Karl Reber, a professor at the Universty of Lausanne and director of the Swiss School of Archaeology in Athens.
Now, after also finding artefacts with inscriptions, they are sure that they have located the site of the Artemis Amarynthia, which was the end point of the annual procession of people from the once prosperous trading city of Eretrea, 10km away. Source: https://greekcitytimes.com
