The Sanctuary of Artemis…

Visitors to the Brauron Archaeological Museum walk past a statue of a girl holding a hare (circa 320 BC) yesterday. The museum, some 50 kilometers east of Athens, was recently renovated and reopened to the public in August. It is located close to the area’s main archaeological attraction, the Sanctuary of Artemis, the ancient goddess of the wilderness and the hunt. The sanctuary contains a small temple to Artemis that dates to the late 6th century BC. Remnants of a stone bridge and dining rooms can also be seen at the ancient site.
