  • Juliana Figueira da Hora UNISA/USP


This article aims to bring a history of the archaeological excavations of the island of Thassos, a Greek polis located in the North of the Aegean, founded in the Archaic Period. In this sense, we will present important structures excavated over the 19th and 20th centuries. These are religious structures such as the Sanctuary of Heracles, Sanctuary of Athena, Sanctuary of Artemis, Sanctuary of Demeter and two Sanctuaries of Apollo (Píthio and in Aliki), and also other Archaic structures such as Phari ceramic workshop and Archaic residences. The French School of Athens coordinated all of these excavations between 1911 and 2011. In this article, we will highlight the main places of worship in this polis, as they are important spaces for understanding the initial urban and civic-religious dynamics of one of the most important polis in the Mediterranean.
