Musical finds from the Tomb of the Poet

November 14, 2012

Musical finds from the Tomb of the Poet, and their interpretation

A significant archaeological find came to light some thirty years ago in Daphne, Attica. The so-called Tomb of the Poet dates back to the classical era (around 430 BC) and the excellent condition of the grave goods yielded valuable information to archaeologists – especially concerning music and musical instruments in ancient times.
