Kifissia Archaeological Collection
Opened in 2004, the Kifissia Archaeological Collection is located in a 1930s house, with exhibits on the main floor and an archaeological laboratory below ground level. Derived from excavations on private and public digs, the exhibits highlight the importance of northern Attica’s ancient cities. The area of Kifissia was continuously inhabited from the Geometric period until the Roman era, according to the archaeological evidence.
Important finds from Kifissia, Maroussi and Pallini are on display, with the excavations of Attiki Odos well represented. Also of note is the collection of Roman sculptures, from the period when Herod Atticus was based in Kifissia. The exhibition’s most famous artefact is the headstone of Archestratus, discovered near the bed of the Panagitsas stream in Pallini and dating from 340 to 330 BC.
The museum also showcases ceramics from all eras of antiquity, as well as bronze vases from local cemeteries.
