Sarafopoulou Domna

Domna Sarafopoulou graduated cum laude in 2016 from the School of History and Archaeology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with a specialization in Archaeology and History of Art. She continued her studies at the same university, earning a Master’s Degree in Classical Archaeology in 2019. In her master’s thesis, she studied the Cults in Aegean Thrace during the Archaic and Classical era through literary and archaeological sources, as well as the historical and political factors that influenced the formation of the cities’ religious identities. Her master’s degree was funded by an Onassis Public Benefit Foundation scholarship.

She has taken part in numerous excavations and field surveys carried out by Greek and international universities in Greece (Pella, Vergina, Abdera-Xanthi, Molyvoti-Komotini, and Thorikos-Lavrio), as well as Italy (Tito-Potenza). She worked as a contract archaeologist at Philippi’s archaeological site from 2019 to 2021 (Ephorate of Antiquities of Kavala). She also voluntarily guides architectural tours organized by Open House in Thessaloniki. She is working at the “Athena” Research Center since November 2021 as part of the project “MYTHO: Mythological Itineraries in Eastern Macedonia and Thrace.”
