Piraeus Archaeological Museum information
The museum’s star attraction is the magnificent statue of Apollo, the Piraeus Kouros, the larger-than-life, oldest hollow bronze statue yet found. It dates from about 520 BC and was discovered in Piraeus, buried in rubble, in 1959. Other important finds from the area include fine tomb reliefs from the 4th to 2nd centuries BC.
