Perachora Excavation 1930-1939: Season 1930

Excavation: Research excavation

The Heraeum, which was an oracle-temple, gave its name to the pro- montory on which it stood. Its position has not yet been discovered with certainty, though a vast deposit of votives which inscriptions prove to have been dedicated to Hera was found. These seem to have been kept in a special building, a kind of Treasury, and not in the temple itself. By a small natural harbour some little distance from this building the remains of a temple, which goes back to the early fifth century, came to light. The principal finds were made in the votive deposit already mentioned. They include a vast quantity of Protocorinthian and Corinthian pottery, in which are many fine pieces decorated with animals. Imported pieces include Attic, Boeotian, Laconian, Parian and Rhodian sherds, and fragments of at least one bucchero vase which is certainly Etruscan and not East Greek. There are some ivory fibulae, circular seals, and couchant animals, which recall ivories found at the Sanctuary of Artemis Orthia. In addition there are a number of terracotta figurines, some engraved gems (geometric and archaic), a fine small ivory head of classical style, gold pins, sixty Egyptian scarabs and beads, and an interesting series of bronzes dating from the early seventh century to the fifth.

Active from 05 May 1930 to 15 Jun 1930.
