Aegean area. 23 The role that maritime trade must have played for Aegina is underlined by the fact that seafaring is repeatedly the topic of the otherwise figure-less decoration of Aeginetan vessels (Fig. 31).24

The most distinctive feature of this phase, however, which must have been the result of a flourishing economy, is the apparent growth in the number of inhabitants, which increased in the course of the Middle Helladic period to such an extent that the old settlement area was no longer sufficient and an enlargement became necessary. For this purpose a new "Lower Town" (Figs. 6, 10), with new rows of rectangular houses and a new fortification wall to the east, was erected in front of the old fortification walls.25 Again, the realization of such a fundamental change in a basically functioning pattern of fortification and settlement seems to demand the presence of a central authority, whose existence is attested by two sets of evidence.

The first is the singular stone-built and tumulus-covered shaft grave in front of the new fortification wall, with its rich gifts of armor and local as well as imported pottery,26 and the second is the so called "Grosssteinbau",27 in a central position immediately behind the fortification wall of the "Upper Town" between the north and the south gate. In this second instance, a number of originally separate houses were united to form a monumental structure - partly by circumvallating the older walls with a new wall and so achieving double thickness, which in all probability indicates the presence of a second story, and partly by erecting new walls on the foundations of big, roughly hewn blocks otherwise unattested in domestic context. We still do not know the full extent of this monumental building, but it is clear that it bars the course of the important east-west road leading through the settlement to the north city gate. It seems impossible to explain this fundamental alter-

ation of the city plan simply as a private initiative of a nouveau riche, and it is tempting to see in this building the residence of the local leader. It may be significant that initial survey of pottery found in this building over the last two years shows that it contains, besides the usual local wares, a high percentage of imported vessels - particularly from the Cyclades and Crete, but also including imported minoanizing and local Minoan-type pottery - not only in the category of fine decorated ware, but also undecorated and kitchen ware.28 On the whole, the picture corresponds extremely well with the contents of the shaft grave and hence a link between these two monuments does not seem far-fetched.

From the following period, the end of the Middle Bronze Age and the beginnings of the Mycenaean period, the evidence becomes more scant, not because of a decrease in importance of the site - on the contrary, we now see again an extension of the settlement area to the east and, connected with it, the erection of a new, strong fortification wall (Fig. 11) - but as a consequence of far-reaching leveling actions in Archaic and later times. About the overall structure of the settlement, however, we know very little.29 The only fact of which we can be sure is that the above-mentioned monumental building underwent substantial alterations in this period with regard to structure as well as function: in its southwest part was installed a potters kiln, which was in use throughout a long period in the early Late Bronze Age.30

What is true for the late Middle Helladic and Early Late Helladic settlement is still truer for the later Mycenaean period, for which we have only rather sparse ceramic evidence and almost no substantial architectural remains at all on the Kolonna hill. But the quite numerous finds of this phase from the necropolis on Windmill Hill, which surely belonged to the Kolonna settlement, warn us - as had been stressed by St. Hiller31 - against interpreting the paucity of evidence as clear indication of decline and of a significant decrease in population. Above all it is the results of the recent excavations at the south slope of the hill which show that this would be a rash conclusion.32 Here, beneath the remains of Archaic and Hellenistic structures, were uncovered remnants of terrace walls and buildings that extended proba

bly as far as the shore and the harbor (Fig. 12). Even if we still cannot determine the overall structure and the date of origin of this real "Lower Town", the large number of later Mycenaean pottery fragments found here suggest that the whole enlarged settlement was in use at least until LH IIIB. Moreover, the quality of the pottery fragments - among them some fine examples of the pictorial style (Fig. 13) - show that the settlement must still have been quite flourishing and that, on the evidence of some Cypriot white slip II sherds (Fig. 14), sea trade still played a role. It is to be hoped that future excavations in this area will shed some more light on the Late Bronze Age history of Kolonna and especially on its conclusion, which must have taken place at the latest in the course of LH IIIC. In any case, among the finds of

Fig. 13 Fragments of LH IIIB deep bowl crater with representation of a sphinx
Fig. 14 Fragment of Cypriote white slip II bowl

this area there are hardly any LH IIIC sherds at all and the same is true among finds from the graves on Windmill Hill.33 It is obvious that the traditional wealth of the Kolonna settlement had come to an end and that it would take some time until the hill again became the setting of human activity.

Resettlement did not occur until an advanced stage of the Protogeometric period. In the later 10th century B.C. there began a strong revival of the site, as is proven by a series of children's burials, securely dated by their gifts to Protogeometric/Early Geometric times (Fig. 15),34 and by a large number of wells all over the hill, which because of their long-term use are not so precisely datable but which certainly belong at least in part to the same period. They testify to the existence at this time of a large settlement on the hill, which afterward, in the seventh and sixth centuries B.C., developed step by step

Fig. 15 Protogeometric pyxis from child burial

to become the main sanctuary and acropolis of the city of Aegina.

It is rather tempting to connect this revival with the influx of Peloponnesian settlers into Aegina, reported by Herodotos, Strabo and Pausanias.35 Moreover, the type of many of the burials, in small monolithic cists, a specialty - as was emphasized by St. Hiller - of the northeast Peloponnese, seems to confirm these reports.36 If this is the case the question arises: what was the attitude of the new settlers toward the material remains, and the surely still visible testimonies, of former human life in their new place of dwelling?

Certainly, their primary interest in regard to ritual practice must have been to install their own tradition, a concern that is possibly documented by a building complex at the west edge of the hill. In this location, A. Furtwangler und G. Welter had uncovered part of a Late Archaic building that contained a series of sacrificial pits, full of miniature votive skyphoi and covered by omphaloi, apparently attest-

ing a chthonic cult.37 The new excavations have shown that we have to do here with an extended building complex of unroofed courtyards and small rooms (Fig. 16), probably for dining purposes, which underwent substantial rebuilding in Hellenistic times, though without - as it seems - much change in function: the small Archaic dining rooms, filled up in the course of the reorganization, were simply transferred into the former middle court, and the dining -as is proven by the pottery - continued, apparently still in chthonic context on the evidence of a terracotta relief depicting two deities bearing cornucopia (Fig. 17).38

Beneath the Late Archaic level, however, older structures were uncovered: again two Protogeomet-

ric/Early Geometric children's burials and, at a small distance south of them, two small circular stone-paved platforms of the same period (Fig. 18).39 It is highly probable that the platforms are to be seen in connection with the burials and that they belong to the series of similar platforms found in burial contexts in Asine, Naxos, Lefkandi and Eleutherna and connected with older Bronze Age structures in Troy, Miletos and Mycenae.40 The initial interpretation of these platforms as places for funerary meals, by R. Hagg, which has gained impressive confirmation through the finds of V. Lambrinoudakis in Naxos, must be valid for Aegina, too, and the possibility is not to be excluded that activities of ancestor cult connected with these funerary meals may have

served as a means to connect the past prehistory, whose testimonies the new settlers must have encountered at every step, with the new history of the Kolonna hill.

There are perhaps still other, more direct indications that could support the assumption that the Dark Age settlers tried to incorporate the relics of the past into their own religious conceptions. One is a curved wall, reported by G. Welter as running east-west next to the temple of Apollo and connected with a deposit of Protogeometric skyphoi and amphoras, which Welter took as evidence of a chthonic cult with ritual libations.41 The wall apparently no longer exists but in plans of the older excavations, there is a curved wall directed eastward immediately south of the temple foundations, which St. Hiller identified with the wall reported by Welter (Fig. 19).42 On the basis of the plans, he reconstructs an early apsidal temple building, oriented to the MH shaft grave mentioned above, whose tumulus could have remained visible even in times when the MH fortification wall had fallen into disrepair. And it is indeed striking that we see a concentration of Protogeometric children's burial cists around the area of the shaft grave.43 On Hiller's argument, a connection exists between the earlier, prominent burial, on the one hand, and the orientation of the cult building and the burials of the new settlers, on the other. Recently, however, W. Gauss has expressed serious doubts about the identification and interpretation of the curved wall, mainly on the basis of discrepancies in level and the difficulties in accommodating the hypothetical apsidal building in the given space,44 and I tend to share his doubts, but the last word cannot be said until we can say more about the layout of the Geometric settlement.

Another, similar case, again connected with an exceptional burial, concerns a massive stone-built cist grave singular in one respect: it is the only such grave in the central area of the settlement that contained the skeleton of an adult male (Fig. 20). Its Dark Age date is attested by the remnants of a Protogeometric iron pin inside the cist and by Protogeometric sherds in the burial shaft.45 It was found in 2003 inside the

monumental MH building that we interpret as the local leader's residence. Again the inevitable question: is it purely fortuitous that this lone Dark Age burial found its place in a building of singular importance of the Middle Bronze Age settlement, or did there survive some knowledge of past times, founded on the visible remains on the hill, that prompted the location of the exceptional burial as well as the installation of an adjacent altar (Fig. 21)?46 The altar in particular is reminiscent of Pausanias's description of the temenos of Aiakos in "the most excellent place of the town" - surely the Kolonna hill - where, the people said, an altar marks the tomb of the founder king.47

But even if these suggestions remain speculative, it seems nevertheless quite certain, as was shown by A. Zunker,48 that in the course of the seventh century, when the sacral connotation of the Kolonna hill became stronger and stronger - as is shown by the splendid ceramic votive gifts that then accumulated on the hill - the inhabitants of Aegina were at work on a new mythical tradition for the island. Naturally enough it concentrated on their founder hero. HOMER mentions Aiakos only as son of Zeus, not naming his dwelling place or his mother Aegina,49 who is also absent from the catalogue of lovers of Zeus (Il. 14.312 ff.). These facts were provided, however, in the Ehoiai,50 attributed to Hesiod, as was the origin of the Myrmidons from Aegina, whereas for Homer they are clearly Thessalians.51 It seems that it was not until the seventh century B.C. that Aiakos, originally probably a central or northern Greek hero, and consequently Peleus and Telamon and also Achilleus and Aias - all highlights of Greek mythology - became firmly connected with Aegina52 and hence supplied the necessary mythical background for an increasingly flourishing society.

It must have been then and in the years to come that the settlement on the hill was transferred to the area around the harbor and that the promontory was reserved for religious purposes. Other deities in addition to Apollo were worshipped,53 monumental votive sculpture makes its appearance, and we have testimony of the first substantial temple building at

52 Zunker 1988, 231.

53 Felten 2001, 127-34.

Fig. 27 Late archaic building complex, south slope of Aegina-Kolonna

the site, dating to the beginning of the sixth century B.C., whose associated deity and location remains unknown (Fig. 22).54 Thereafter, before the middle of the sixth century, there was erected the first large peripteral temple at the site, its pediments decorated with sculpture (Fig. 23), which apparently fell victim to fire after a short time.55 And finally, at the end of the sixth century, an extensive new building program was realized, which affected the entire Kolonna hill.

To this program belongs the new Late Archaic temple of Apollo with its marble pediments (Fig. 24),56 a huge retaining wall at the north flank of the hill, and a monumental stairway up to the acropolis at the east side (Figs. 25, 26);57 also, at the west end of the promontory, the building complex we have already seen; and, finally, at the south flank of the hill, another extensive architectural ensemble (Fig. 27).58 On the basis of a series of stone-built sacrificial shafts and of female terracotta figurines and masks, I interpret this ensemble as the Thesmophorion, men tioned by Herodotos as situated at the "so-called old town"59 - a name that perhaps again indicates the consciousness of the Aeginetans of the old history of the Kolonna hill.

This consciousness must have been intensified by the carrying out of the ambitious building program, in the course of which the Aeginetans must have been continually confronted with the remains of previous life on the promontory. And this, in turn, may have had consequences on Aeginetan mythology. Especially in preparations of the north flank of the hill for the erection of the huge retaining wall, it was inevitable that the builders ran into the impressive Middle and Late Bronze Age fortification walls (Figs. 11, 25). It may be that this is the point at which the Trojan connection enters in: while, according to Homer, Apollo and Poseidon had been the erectors of the walls of Troy,60 Pindar, in the first half of the fifth century, provides a more detailed and enriched version of this story, involving Aegina. In Olympian 8 he adds the information that Aiakos, too, assisted in

Fig. 28 Plan of archaic to late/postantique structures of Aegina-Kolonna the erection of exactly that piece of wall, which would later in the second Trojan War be destroyed by the Greeks.61 It does not seem far-fetched to suggest a connection between this later tradition of Aiakos's activity at Troy and the nearly contemporaneous discovery of the prehistoric fortifications at Aegina-Kolonna. If that is so, then the discovery originated a new local mythical explanation - Aiakos as erector of fortifications - that made its first literary appearance in the odes of Pindar.

Without a doubt, this period saw the summit of Aegina's wealth and glory; shortly afterward - about the middle of the fifth century - it fell victim to the rivalry of Athens. Athenians settled on the island and the Aeginetans were repeatedly expelled. Certainly, religious life continued on the Kolonna hill: existing buildings were repaired and adapted. But as far as we can see, there is nothing that could be compared with the efforts of the previous years, when the acropolis of Aegina could very nearly have entered into competition with the Athenian acropolis.

But still the history of the Kolonna hill was not at its end. When, in the late third century, Aegina was sold to the rulers of Pergamon,62 the promontory experienced a sort of revival. In accordance with the intention behind the purchase, by which the Pergamenes acquired a strong naval base in the

Saronic Gulf, new building activities took place. As a first aim, the area had to be transformed into a kind of military installation where the Pergamene garrison could stay in safety. For this reason the old temenos wall at the north flank and a new wall in the east were heavily reinforced by rectangular towers, and a new fortification was erected at the south flank of the hill and in the plain between hill and harbor (Figs. 28, 29) to provide sufficient space for the barracks of the Pergamene troops and, we suspect, for a palace for the governors and in particular the kings, who repeatedly spent the winter in Aegina.63 In addition to these efforts to fortify the site, we see that the sacral function, too, continued to play a role and even received new impulses. We can take it as assured that the main cult buildings survived basically unchanged and that others, as we have seen in the case of the building complex at the west end of the promontory, underwent substantial reorganization without much apparent change in function. There were, as well, buildings that were newly erected, and that served apparently for religious purposes connected with the new rulers. We learn, for example, from an inscription, that King Attalos, through his ancestor Herakles a descendant of Zeus like Aiakos, received a cult together with his relative - certainly on the Kolonna hill,64 and there survive the foundations of three cult

buildings and an altar of this period west of the Apollo temple.65 I would not want to speculate whether this architectural group, in the area where the singular Protogeometric burial was found (Figs. 21, 28), should be identified with the Aiakeion, but this much seems clear: what evolves in the period of Pergamene rule on the promontory is a combination of fortified stronghold, rulers' residence, and sacral area as are known from Pergamon itself - again a vast field for future research.66

When Aegina as a consequence of the last will of Attalos III fell to Rome, this new revival found its end and the gradual decline is manifest. In the mid-first century B.C., Sulpicius Rufus writes to Cicero that Aegina belongs to the towns that were formerly highly flourishing but that now lie in ruins,67 and

indeed there are only very scant indications that cult practice continued on the hill. The end of the history of Kolonna seems to have been unavoidable given the banning of pagan cults, and it strikes one as an irony that it is only the turmoil of the migrations in the sixth century that produces a new start for life in this place. According to the Chronicle of Monemvasia, the inhabitants of Corinth fled in the late sixth century from the approaching Avars to Aegina,68 and indeed, exactly at this time, we see the opening of a new, post-antique chapter of Aeginetan history, which in some ways refers back to the beginnings of Kolonna's prehistory: again it is an extended settlement, now covering the hill anew,69 concentrated on security through fortification that is as strong as possible and that uses and reinforces for this aim the existing structures of the past (Fig. 30).70 And still, or again, it is apparently the sea that supplies the basis for the life of the inhabitants - the main topic on the few figure-decorated vessels of this period is seafaring71 -and there is not much difference between our pictures of the Middle Bronze Age and Early Byzantine times (Figs. 31, 32).

69 The post-antique architectural remains on top of the hill were removed by A. FURTWÀNGLER at the start of his excavations in Kolonna at the beginning of the 20th century, but there survived extensive parts of the settlement on the south slope of the hill that give an impression of the original layout; see Felten 1975, plan 5, and PENNAS 2004, 12, fig. 9.

70 Felten 1975, 55-78; PENNAS (2004, 11-5) is certainly right in dating the north retaining wall as post-Herulian; cf. Wurster 1975, 9-12.
