Eretria XIII

Elena Mango, The Gymnasium (in German)

The gymnasium of Eretria is one of the public buildings of the ancient city whose remains are still visible today. Erected toward the end of the fourth century BC, it underwent several changes but was continually in use until the Roman Imperial period when it was eventually destroyed. Elena Mango’s study aims at presenting the history and architecture of the building, as well as the function of the various rooms. It is based on recent excavations and on the numerous finds discovered onsite during over a century: architecture, pottery, inscriptions, coins and sculpture.
