Twin Kouroi of Tenea hosted in restored hall of Ancient Corinth Museum


Two very important finds, the twin marble Kouroi of Tenea (statues of young males of the Archaic Period) that were found a few years ago in Klenia of Corinth are now displayed, for the first time, in one of the restored halls of  the Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth that was inaugurated earlier this month.

The Kouroi were found during an illegal digging in the area of Klenia. Later, the authorities conducted an excavation in the area and found the missing parts of the Kouroi and their sarcophagus.

Police arrested antiquities smugglers in May 2010 and the statues were sent to the National Archaeological Museum in Athens for restoration.
