Archaeological Museum of Philippi
© Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace
The Archaeological Museum of Philippi, an early 1960’s building, was constructed in the archaeological site under the same name, in accordance with the plans of the architects D. Triantafyllidis and D. Fatouros.
The hall displays finds from the prehistoric settlement of Dikili-Tas. In another room, there are showcases with Neolithic finds from the settlement of Sitagrïi. The main room on the ground floor exhibits finds from the city’s Early Christian period that includes several inscriptions, closure panels, capitals and fragmentized parts of the mosaics and sculptures. The room of the first floor displays finds of the Hellenistic (323 – 30 BC) and Roman (30 BC – 324 AD) times. The most representative examples from these periods are the 4th c. BC inscriptions, the upper part of a statue of Athena, Nikes, and the portraits of emperors. In the courtyard, sarcophagi, funerary reliefs and mosaic floors decorated with geometrical patterns are on exhibit.
The museum is currently closed to visitors due to restoration works.
