The Cave of Euripides is situated in an area called Peristeria (13 km southern from town Salamina). The Greek Professor of Archaeology, Yannos Lolos, has been exploring this cave since 1994. The cave comprises of ten distinct parts. It is estimated that the cave had been used during eight different periods, from the Neolithic era to the modern years. Items from different periods, such as stone tools, a Mycenaean sword, vessels of the Classic, Hellenistic, Roman eras and Frankish rule, coins, jewelry, were found here. The coastal location of the cave, its morphology as well as the recent discovery of a skyphos (a pottery wine-cup dating from 430-420 B.C.) bearing the name of tragedy writer Euripides prove that this is the cave where he withdrew in order to write his works.
