The permanent exhibition of the Archaeological Collection of Distomo presents the history of the ancient Phocean city of Ambrossos and its broader region. The exhibits date from the Mycenaean to the Early Christian periods and come from rescue excavations of the Tenth Ephorate of Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. The most important finds are the Mycenaean to Roman pottery, the funerary larnax, the folding bronze mirror and fragments of the floor mosaic from the Early Christian basilica of Distomo, and the objects from Antikyra and Medeon, nearby cities of ancient Phocis on the modern coast of Distomo.
- Funerary stelai (Entrance hall)
Eight funerary stelai with palmette or pediment-shaped crowning members from Distomo, which date to the Classical and Hellenistic periods, are presented in this unit.
- Antiquities from Distomo (First room)
This unit comprises finds of various periods from rescue excavations at Distomo.
- Pottery (Second room)
The development of local pottery from Mycenaean to Roman times is illustrated through a series of vases from the greater region of Distomo (Zemenos, Karakolithos, Medeon, Antikyra).
