Archaeological Museum of Veria

The Archaeological Museum of Veria was founded in the beginning of the 1960s, in order to collect, preserve and promote important ancient findings from the whole of the Prefecture of Imathia. It was renovated in 2009 and at its showcases there are exhibited rare antiquities from the Late Bronze Period to the Roman times. The visitor can admire the monumental head of Medusa, which was built in the walls of the city walls, so that it could have a deterring effect on the enemies. Another important exhibit is the so-called “Gymnasiarchical” Law of Veroia. It is an inscription with which they defined the operation of the Gymnasium of the ancient city.
