  • Nice piece of history. Worth the trip !
  • The entire island of Delos is awe inspiring, and historic. One of the most impressive sights ever. A must see.
  • Delos Archaeological Site. A must see!!! Beautiful island and lots of ruins. So much history.
  • Not Cleopatra VII, the famous Greek queen, last pharaoh of Egypt. In 1906 French archaeologists found the headless statues of the owners of this house, Dioskourides and his wife Cleopatra, a couple from Athens; they were erected in 138 BC by Cleopatra after the death of her husband; Cleopatra is a Greek name meaning "glory of her father". Worth seing.
  • On Delos there were no numbers of the streets and no numbers either. How did then people know at which door to knock? By these kind of status at the entrance of the house. For sure, their looks needed to be renewed every few years, accordingly to the owners looks. Not the whole statue would be renovated, but just a head of it.
