Sikyon is probably the most important ancient Greek city that you’ve never heard of. Known for centuries from only brief mentions in Classical literature, intensive archaeological work only began here in the late 1990s. The secrets of this prosperous trading city have been rapidly uncovered by Greek and Danish teams with the most amazing results coming in the past five years. Research has revealed a sprawling Archaic city of more than 40,000 people at a strategic point on the Corinthian Gulf. History may have forgotten Sikyon, but this public lecture shows how our new knowledge brings the city and its ancient past back to life in surprising ways.
