The results of the latest Swedish expedition in Caria (Turkey), at the Sanctuary of Zeus Lavrandios will be presented on Thursday the 24th of February the archaeologist Lars Karlsson at the Acropolis Museum.

The sanctuary had been primarily excavated by the famous Swedish archaeologist Axel Persson in 1948.

The route joining the ancient city of Milas with the sanctuary follows the ancient causeway and it is flanked by statues and tombs, while the site’s diachronically high importance is seen through the various monuments from the Roman and Byzantine times.
