Title: Phoenicians in Southern Crete
Authors: Shaw, Joseph W.
Keywords: Excavations (Archaeology) - Greece - Kommos (Crete)
Issue Date: 1989
Publisher: The Archaeological Institute of America
Citation: Shaw, Joseph W. "Phoenicians in Southern Crete". American Journal of Archaeology 93 (1989): p. 165- 183.
Abstract: During the 1979 excavation season at Kommos, a curious structure with three tapering stone pillars was discovered on the floor of a Geometric/Archaic temple, above which lay a fourth-century B.C. Greek temple. The tripillar structure appears to have been a center of worship particularly in the late ninth and eighth centuries B.C. Its appearance and certain historical and archaeological indications suggest that it may have been inspired by Phoenician shrines, if not set up by Phoenician seafarers visiting Kommos.
