The Sanctuary Of Demeter And Kore from the Author: Nancy Bookidis. This volume continues the publication of excavations conducted by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore on Acrocorinth. It incorporates two bodies of material--Greek lamps and offering trays. The lamps include those made from the 7th through 2nd centuries B.C., together with a few Roman examples not included in Corinth XVIII.2. They served to provide light and to accompany the rites of sacrifice. The offering trays differ from the liknon-type offering trays published by A. Brumfield; they support a variety of vessels rather than types of food and had a symbolic function in the Sanctuary rituals. They are extremely common in the Sanctuary and only rarely attested elsewhere.

Demeter And Persephone In Ancient Corinth from the Author: Nancy Bookidis. When the Roman tourist Pausanias visited Corinth around A.D. 160, he saw many shrines and buildings high up to the south of the city, on the slopes of Acrocorinth. This booklet describes excavations at one of these, the Sanctuary of Demeter and Persephone (Kore). The details of religious rites revealed are of particular interest since the cult of the two goddesses, also celebrated at Eleusis, is one of the most mysterious in antiquity, and no literary testimony exists to explain what may have happened behind the high walls. Terracotta dolls, ritual meals of pork, and miniature models of food-filled platters hint at a vigorous religious tradition associated with human and agricultural fertility.

The Sanctuary Of Demeter And Kore from the Author: Gloria S. Merker. About 24,000 figurines and fragments have been found on Acrocorinth, and this study greatly increases our understanding of the way in which this artform developed over the centuries. The figures depicted also reveal new evidence about the deities and heroes recognized at the sanctuary, the age and gender of the participants in the rituls, the offerings they brought, and the nature of their cultic activities.

The Sanctuary Of Demeter And Kore from the Author: Ronald Stroud. Excavations conducted by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in the Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore on Acrocorinth, 1961-1975, produced more than 170 inscribed objects of stone, bronze, and bone, as well as lead weights, mosaics, dipinti and graffiti on pottery, clay pinakes, and magical lead tablets. All of the inscriptions in this volume are transcribed, and the author relates them to an overall interpretation of the activities, secular and religious, attested in this shrine during its long period of use from the 7th century B.C. until the end of the 4th century A.D. Where possible, the author also draws out their implications for and contribution to the history of ancient Corinth, the worship of the goddesses Demeter and Kore, and the practice of magic, especially in the Roman period. This is the final publication of all the inscribed objects from the sanctuary, excluding stamped amphora handles and loomweights, which will be included in a later fascicle.
