THASSOS > ARCHAEOLOGY

Ancient Thassos

Ancient Thassos North Aegean Greek Islands Greece

Ancient Thassos, Horigic Monument and the temple of Apollo Pithio are some of the most important archaeological monuments of the ancient city of Thassos which were built around 700 B.C. by Parians and their leader Telesiklis who was the father of Archiligos. In the old times Thracians used to live there but were displaced by Parians. The settlement of the Greeks was related to the development of Pageos’ mines. Thassos quickly became a commercial and spiritual centre. Numerous inscriptions as well as currency prove the ancient city’s development due to its location, its port and the Pageos’ mines.

The ruins of Agora, which was the political and religious centre, reveal how people lived in those days. The market was full of archways something that architecture changed in 4th century B.C. after the Roman had left the island. It is worth visiting Propilea, the tomb of Glaukos (7th century), the north-eastern archway (4th century) and the south-western archway that has seven entries.

Acropolis probably dates back to the dark ages, but some of the ruins are of the 5th century.

The temple of Pithio Apollo has an archaic style. It has three different parts and was built around 500 B.C.

Horigico Monument has only preserved its base until today. It is located in the yard of Dionysus’ temple. There is a monumental inscription dedicated in Agathos Demon the worship of whom, dates back to 4th century.

The gate of the goddess with the float is located near the shipyards. In a gate’s walls in the south jamb there is an anaglyph representation of the goddess sitting on a two horse float with Ermis holding the reins that dates back to the 5th century.

The gate of Silinos has an anaglyph on its west side which represents Silinos who was the city’s protector. He appears to have beard, lots of hair and a horse’s tail forming an overall demonic face. This anaglyph is known from the archaic coins of Thassos.

The gate of Hercules and Dionysus is located next to the west side of Silinos’ gate. Its width is 4,60m and its height is more than 7 meters. There are two anaglyphs. The first one depicted Hercules as an archer and the other showed Dionysos followed by three nymphs waving vine branches. The first one is placed in the museum of Istanbul, while the second one has been lost. The gate’s anaglyphs dated back to the 6th or 5th century.

The arch Karakala is located near Hercules’ gate. A monumental inscription mentions the names of Karakallas, Ioulia Domna, Septimios Seviros (213-217 A.D.) there was also a statue of Karakalla.

The sanctuary of Poseidon is located near the Horigico Monument, opposite the coastal gate, by the sea. It was built at an even construction that gives to it a quit uneven design. In the right side of the exterior there is Ira’s altar. In the museum there is a monumental inscription that describes the ceremony of the adoration.
