Chersonasos

Chersonasos at Sphinari (Kissamos)

On the western coast of Crete, in the village Sphinari, there are traces of an ancient town and harbour named Chersonasos (peninsula), mentioned in old sources like Polemy and Strabo. The exact location had not been known until last August 2012, when I identified it by the help of some tile sherds and walls made of rocks. If you want to know more details,you can find a report in German. Greek or English under the following link:
