Amongst these offerings, there are special statuettes of boys and girls dedicated to Artemis. They were called “arktos”, which is the name of the bear in ancient Greek. Due to the interest of Artemis in hunting, the Goddess had been correlated with various animals and the bear is one of them. Pottery and jewelry items are also on display, as well as findings from the wider region of Mesogaia, completing the wealth of exhibits in the museum.
