Kourion: The Monuments Of The City
Cytop Net ^ | 1998 | staff

Posted on 12/25/2004 7:32:09 PM PST by SunkenCiv

This private house is viewable while mounting the hill of Kourion at the left turn towards the Theatre. According to the excavators it was constructed in the late 1st or in the early 2nd century. It was remodeled in the mid 4th century and demolished definitely by the big earthquake, which occurred after the mid 4th century A.D. (365 A.C.). The ruins of this house reflect life in the city of Kourion at the moment of the demolition and all the finds are exposed at the local Museum situated in the village of Episkopi.

Not sure where I quoted this from, probably a Berlitz guide to Greece or something:
Kalymnos, an island in the Aegean just north of Kos, between Kos and Samos, has some nice beaches (it says here), and a coastline with plenty of coves, cliffs, and caves (just love those Berlitz alliterative descriptions). In 535 AD an earthquake split off what is now an islet called Telendos and in the process submerged an ancient town still visible under the water (attention divers!).
