Professor John K. Papadopoulos;
New Evidence from Ancient Methone
Monday, January 27
Famed cities in Hellas such as Methone often pass into oblivion until rediscovered through archaeology. Destroyed in 354 BCE by Philip II, father of the great Alexander, its treasured finds have been excavated by the Greek Archaeological Service, collaborating since 2014 with the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. Professor Papadopoulos of UCLA Cotsen Institute of Archaeology discusses its thriving settlement, industrial center, and harbor which served as a cultural conduit. Treated also will be Methone’s significant role in the development of the Greek language.
