Research Center for Antiquity

The Research Centre for Antiquity was created in 1977 as a result of the Academician George E. Mylonas' initiative. The aim of the Centre is to promote research in the History, Art and Civilization of Greek and Roman antiquity. The Centre began functioning virtually in 1980 when its first research-worker was appointed.

There are four general research programmes pursued by the Centre which concern three different periods of antiquity:
- The Creto-Mycenaean Programme
- The Classical Programme
- The Roman Programme

The Research Centre for Antiquity supervises also, in collaboration with the relevant Committees of Academicians, the Greek participation in the following international scholarly projects which are conducted under the aegis of the Union Academique Internationale and the Association Internationale d'Archeologie Classique:
- Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum
- Tabula Imperii Romani
- Sylloge Nummorum Graecorum
- Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani
Research-workers of the Centre often participate as authors in these scholarly undertakings.
