Kynosarges Excavation 1896-1897
The goal of this excavation was to re-examine Dr. Dörpfeld's theory that the site of Kynosarges with its gymnasium and its shrine of Herakles was located in a plot of open ground southwest of the Olympieion, on the opposite bank of the Ilissos. Excavations revealed, under traces of later structures, a large building thought to be a gymnasium. Periods that showed most in the chronology were the Geometric period and evidence shows use through to the time of Hadrian.
Active from 1896 to 1897.
