Delos

Delos is a small island and archaelogical site that is part of the Cyclades island group. It has been made a WHS because of:

- its role in early archaeology,

- its part in Aegean history,

- its important role as cosmopolitan Mediterranean port from the 4th to the 1st century BC,

- it being the mythological birthplace of Apollo and Artemis.

Delos by John Booth

Delos Island is accessible by daily ferries from Mykonos. The WHS takes up half of the area of the island, so to see it all means a lot of walking. In the middle of the island is a museum containing statues and artifacts found on the island, one of the bvest in Greece.

In antiquity Delos was a consular city, where governments around the Mediterranean, and as far away as Syria, sent representatives to resolve disputes, arrange trade etc.

The residents obviously enjoyed a high degree of comfort, judging from the size of their houses, the amenities and entertainment available.
