La città ellenica sovrapposta al palazzo minoico di Festo in Creta (con Appendici nn. 1-3) (The Greek town superimposed on the Minoan palace of Phaistos in Crete)

L. Pernier Creta Antica 10/I (2009): 37-47.


This typed-script is the transcription of a lecture given by Pernier at Berlin, in April 1929, on the occasion of the jubilee of the DAI. The lecture was published the following year, in German, in a periodical of limited distribution, which is therefore difficult to find. It is undoubtedly a popularising work, which contains a series of otherwise unpublished informa­tion about the most recent phases of the Phaistian settlement. Attention is focused on the cis­terns and water catchment system in general, with the clear intention of proposing a sort of continuum between the palatial and Hellenistic periods. Pernier, as is well known, did not manage to complete his publication of the excavations, so that the descriptions of post-pala­tial Phaistos (from the Mycenaean to the Hellenistic-Roman periods) remained anchored to a few preliminary notes. Pernier wanted to devote an entire volume to Phaistos in the Greek period, but only the summary (in two versions, both of which are published in the appendix) was written and signed.
