Miltiades Kylindreas is an incoming PhD student in the Art History Department at Emory University under the direction of Dr. Bonna D. Wescoat. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in History and Archaeology (2011) and his Master’s degree in Classical Archaeology from the University of Athens. His primary research interests focus on ancient Greek architecture, mapping, and Athenian vase painting. He is also keen on ancient Greek topography, and Herodotus.
Miltos is currently participating in the yearly excavations at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace. During the last eight years he has participated in the Athenian Agora Excavations, and since 2017 has been serving as Trench Supervisor at the western side of the Stoa Poikile.
Besides fieldwork, he pursued his interest in new technologies by creating a digital map to incorporate 84 buildings analyzed in his Master’s thesis entitled “The tetrastyle prostyle temple in relation with the distyle in antis oikos during the Archaic, Classical and Hellenistic Periods.” The focal point of this study was to visualize the architectural development and the geographical distribution of the buildings throughout the Mediterranean and, at the same time, to disseminate archaeological knowledge to the wider public. The digital map was published at the website of the Dipylon team (January 2020).
