Casa Romana and Kos Roman Odeon open again

The Casa Romana and the Roman Odeon on the island of Kos will open to visitors once again on Tuesday, the culture and sports ministry announced on Monday.

The two sites had been closed as a precaution following a strong earthquake that shook the island on Friday.
The island's archaeological museum remains closed, the ministry said, with archaeologists, conservators and technicians working intensively to reopen the museum to the public as soon as possible. Of the 43 sculptures on display, three headless torsos and one head fell over as a result of the very strong tremor and suffered minor breaks and chips, chiefly to the plaster sections added in conservation. The rest of the statuary remained in place and was undamaged.
