Collection of Byzantine Ceramics and Applied Arts

The collection of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Ceramics comprises 12 intact vases, approximately 300 sherds as well as other objects that are organized into four educational sections:  art of manufacturing, thematic distribution, chronological development and ornamental brickwork used in masonry. A comprehensive catalogue of all exhibits and a complete photographic archive are available. The collection was enriched in 2012 with 17 pieces of pottery and other ceramic objects (among them a bee-hive) originating from Delphi and related to the material culture of the Early Byzantine period
