Chapter Summary

A statue of Asclepius on a rectangular base of blue marble, found at the Asclepieum at Lissos in 1957 by N. Platon but otherwise unknown, as it is not mentioned in literary sources. The sanctuary, which is rather small, is located near the chapel of Hagios Kirkos, about an hour and a half walk from Souya in south-western Crete. It includes a small Doric temple constructed mostly of ashlar masonry, with polygonal masonry used in the lower east wall built against the slope of a mountain. The inscription was dated by H.W. Pleket to the early Hellenistic period, according to letter forms as seen in the published photograph.
