Is the Dendra Panoply still in the Archaeological Museum of Nauplion or has it been moved?
I have read somewhere that it is now in the Glyphotek in Munich, but that might be just a model reproduction.
Well it was in 2002, but that is quite some time ago.

You mix up the Dendra Armour and Denda´s panoply. Smile
Opps, yeah you are right.. my apologies Smile
I have read somewhere that it has been moved to the Archaeological Museum of Corinth. I was wondering if it was true.

Also, does anyone have this paper?
Taracha, Piotr. 1999. Reconstructing the Dendra Panoply. ArchaeologiaWar 50. p. 7-12.
Is it in English?
I don't know if it wil be of interest, but I happened upon an old archaeological report that shows the cuirass unexcavated. Here's the image.
Very much of interest! First time I have seen the pic. Thats amazing how intact it looks.
So it is very much what you see it what you get with this piece!
There is a discussion here if anyone wants to participate

Sort of. It has been heavily restored and what remains only weighs around 15 kg. My reconstruction weighs closer to 25 kg.
How is it to move in? Does it relect the idea of being for a chariot bound warrior, or is there a fair amount of flexibility and freedom of movement?
It was almost certainly worn by a charioteer. The question is whether it was worn by the driver or the archer. I'm leaning towards the driver because of the neck gorget. The armor is very modular however, and could easily be modified for foot combat by removing the gorget and one or two of the segmented plates.

I'd still be grateful to any of our Greek contributors if they could tell me whether it is still in Nauplion or is now in Corinth.
Well, if you don't hear soon I'll be going in a month or so, but can always ask a relative. He may be able to find out....
As far as I know it's still in the Nauplion Museum. It's definitely not in Corinth.
Thanks Dan

I found where I read about Corinth

If Ioannis is around, maybe he could clarify.
