As a major stopover on maritime trade routes, the southeastern Aegean was influenced by contacts from throughout the Greek world and beyond. is conference will explore the archaeology and literature that testify to the development and continuation of cults in the Dodecanese, from the Early Iron Age through to the first century B.C.
