Abstract


Since 2007 the Belgian School at Athens has been exploring the hill of Kephali tou Agiou Antoniou, east of the village of Sissi, on the north coast of the island. The site is only three kilometres east of the palace at Malia. This paper presents evidence, mainly architectural, to claim the existence of a ceremonial complex of the Neopalatial period on the hill.
