Mikri Dragonara (Antidragonera)

A small islet to the east of Kythera, where there is a sanctuary dedicated to Poseidon, god of the earth and earthquakes. The archaeological digs led by archaeologist Aris Tsaravopoulos and his team in the late 1990s unearthed hundreds of coins dating back to the Hellenistic era that came from 54 cities and kingdoms in the Mediterranean and Black Sea, as well as some vases and amphorae that were given as offerings. The undersea excavations that took place under the stewardship of archaeologist Dimitrions Kourkoumelis revealed nine stone anchors at the bottom of the sea, four of which are on display at the Archaeological Museum of Kythera.
