New excavation project to take place on the site of Ancient Sicyon

Jub

New excavations on the site of Ancient Sicyon and restoration of the ancient theater of Sicyon, one of the largest in antiquity, have been announced. The excavations, which will focus on the ancient sanctuary and stoa, will begin later this month and is projected to last three years with a possibility of extension. The project is said to "reactivate" the original excavations which took place in the 1920s, later in the 1930s-1950s and then again in the 1980s. The project will be carried out in hopes of discovering new information on the lesser known Byzantine history of Sicyon.
