The last lecture of the 2012/13 Lecture series of the Syllogos Filon tou Istorikou Archeiou tis Archaiologikis Iperesias will take place on Monday May 20th at 6:30 PM at the Istoriko Archeio Building at Odos Psaromylingou 22 on the edge of Kerameikos and Psyrri. Prof. Nanno Marinatos (University of Illinois – Chicago) will give the lecture entitled, «Κλοπή Μουσείου Ηρακλείου, 1938». Using documents from the personal archive of her father, Spyridon Marinatos, she will reconstruct like a crime thriller the organized theft from the Archaeological Museum in Herakleio in 1938 and then how he, Nikolaos Platon and the police eventually solved it. The well-known collector of antiquities Dr. Stylianos Gamalakis and the conservator Zacharis Kanakis play positive roles in this investigation as well. Only one object was not recovered.
