Ancient Aqueduct, Thousands of Hellenistic Artifacts Uncovered in Pireaus

By Tasos Kokkinidis -Jul 12, 2020

Greek archaeologists unearthed an ancient aqueduct and thousands of objects and artifacts dating from Hellenistic and Roman times during the excavations for the expansion of the Athens metro line to Pireaus.

Some of the artifacts will frame the permanent exhibition that will be set up in the metro station “Municipal Theater” in Pireaus which is currently under construction.

The exhibition will include, in addition to ancient objects, representations of ancient tanks and wells, a model copy of the aqueduct, as well as an authentic pebble floor from a house room of the classical / Hellenistic era that was found during the excavations.

“There is a large volume of ancient material, precisely because the excavation was the largest ever conducted in Piraeus,” archaeologist George Peppas told Athens-Macedonia News Agency (AMNA).
