The Museum's antiquities collection includes objects representing the major cultures of the ancient Mediterranean world. While Greek and Roman art are the collection's emphasis, ancient Egypt and the ancient Near East are also significantly represented. The collection contains about 8,000 objects; only about 5% of the collection is on display at any given time. The remainder is carefully stored, and objects are brought out periodically for study and temporary exhibitions. Particular strengths in the Greek and Roman collections include approximately 3,000 coins, and a significant number of lamps, glass objects (mostly vessels), Greek and South Italian pottery, terracotta sculpture, and small bronzes. A growing collection of stone sculpture is represented by Roman funerary monuments, portraits of the emperors Nero and Hadrian, and one of an unidentified third-century empress. The antiquities collection also includes substantial holdings representing the cultures of Egypt, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, Iran, Palestine, and Cyprus. Iranian artifacts are particularly strong in pottery and Luristan bronzes. A number of pottery vessels from the early Hacilar and Yortan cultures strengthen the Anatolian collection. The Museum's interest in the archaeology of Cyprus has led to the acquisition of a fine collection of Cypriot pottery. A painted linen mummy shroud, plaster mummy masks, a Coptic tunic, a collection of Coptic textile fragments, and an exquisite agate bowl are exceptional examples from the Egyptian holdings. Finally, over 900 objects from the Palestinian region attest the Museum's long-standing connections with the archaeology of that area.
Το Μουσείο Βυζαντινού Πολιτισμού, από τα πιο σύγχρονα μουσεία στην Ελλάδα, προσφέρει μια ολοκληρωμένη εικόνα του Βυζαντινού πολιτισμού μέσα από τις πρωτότυπες εκθέσεις και την πολυσχιδή δραστηριότητα του. Σκοπός του είναι η συγκέντρωση, προστασία, μελέτη και προβολή έργων τέχνης και αντικειμένων, που καλύπτουν χρονολογικά την παλαιοχριστιανική, βυζαντινή και μεταβυζαντινή περίοδο. Τα έργα που φυλάσσονται και προβάλλονται στους χώρους του προέρχονται από το γεωγραφικό χώρο της Μακεδονίας και ιδιαίτερα από τη Θεσσαλονίκη, το πιο σημαντικό κέντρο στο ευρωπαϊκό τμήμα της βυζαντινής αυτοκρατορίας μετά την Κωνσταντινούπολη.
The Museum of Cycladic Art is dedicated to the study and promotion of ancient cultures of the Aegean and Cyprus, with special emphasis on Cycladic Art of the 3rd millennium BC. It was founded in 1986, to house the collection of Nicholas and Dolly Goulandris. Since then it has grown in size to accommodate new acquisitions, obtained either through direct purchases or through donations by important collectors and institutions. Today, in the galleries of the MCA the visitor can approach three major subjects: Cycladic culture; ancient Greek art; and Cypriot culture.
Excavations carried out at the citadel of Mycenae. 
Kentin ilk olarak İ.Ö. 2. binde Palaimindos adı ile Lelegler tarafından kurulduğu tahmin edilmektedir. Strabon’un rivayet ettiğine göre Myndos, Bodrum Yarımadası üzerinde kurulan 8 Leleg kentinden birisidir. Diğer Leleg kentleri: Termera, Side, Madnasa, Padasa, Uranium, Telmessos ve Theangela/ Syangela’dır. Yine Strabon’a göre, Karia Satrabı Mausolos İ.Ö. 4. yüzyılın ortalarına doğru sekiz kentten altısını boşaltarak, buralarda yaşayan insanları zorla Halikarnassos’a yaşamaya mecbur bırakmıştır. Bu zorunlu göç esnasında Myndos’a dokunulmamış, hatta, kent Mausolos’un parasal yardımı ile o dönemin modern şehircilik anlayışına göre yeniden inşa edilerek, etrafı sur duvarı ile çevrilmiştir. Palaimindos olarak adlandırılan eski kentin Kocadağ olarak adlandırılan Yarımada üzerinde kurulu olduğu tahmin edilmektedir. Günümüze kadar ulaşan kentin büyük bir bölümü Mausolos tarafından kurulan yeni kente aittir. Bununla birlikte Roma İmparatorluk çağında da büyük eklemelerin söz konusu olduğu tahmin edilmektedir.
Archaeological research (includes excavation and study) of material and monuments from the ancient site.
Nestor is an international bibliography of Aegean studies, Homeric society, Indo-European linguistics, and related fields. It is published monthly from September to May (each volume covers one calendar year) by the Department of Classics, University of Cincinnati. An Authors Index accompanies the December issue. Nestor is distributed in 30 countries world-wide. It is currently edited by Carol R. Hershenson. The primary geographic nexus of Nestor is the Aegean, including all of Greece, Albania, and Cyprus, the southern area of Bulgaria, and the western and southern areas of Turkey. Nestor includes publications concerning the central and western Mediterranean, southeastern Europe, the eastern Mediterranean, western Asia, and other regions of archaeological research, if the specific bibliographic items contain Aegean artifacts, imitations, or influences, or make reference to Aegean comparanda.
Early Mediterranean Societies brings together various disciplines to promote an integrated study of these societies through presentations by group members of their own research, discussion of common readings, and lectures by outside speakers. The focus of this group is cultural diffusion and societal interconnections, but any interdisciplinary subject falls within the group's purview. (Donald Haggis, Classics, 962-7640)
