About us

Kairos Archaeology is a unique website in Croatia. It was our intention to provide a unique inside in to Croatian archaeological heritage, and to continuously improve with the help of our friends and visitors from Croatia and all around the world.

Kairos Archaeology is dedicated to archaeologists, historians, students, volunteers, adventurists and tourists who are interested in Croatian archaeological heritage.

Kairos Archaeology is a guide in to Croatia’s archaeological and tourist attractions which invites you to “seize your moment”, leave behind all your every day troubles and plunge your salve into thousands of years of history and to find out how the Mediterranean used to be.

According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment,” “a favorable opportunity opposing the fate of man.” Such a moment must be grasped (by the tuft of hair on the personified forehead of the fleeting opportunity); otherwise the moment is gone and can not be re-captured (personified by the back of head being bald).

Epigram of Posidippos, on the statue of Kairos by Lysippos:

Who and whence was the sculptor?  From Sikyon.
And his name? Lysippos.
And who are you? Time who subdues all things.
Why do you stand on tip-toe? I am ever running.
And why you have a pair of wings on your feet? I fly with the wind.
And why do you hold a razor in your right hand? As a sign to men that I am sharper than any sharp edge.
And why does your hair hang over your face? For him who meets me to take me by the forelock.
And why, in Heaven's name, is the back of your head bald? Because none whom I have once raced by on my winged feet will now, though he wishes it sore, take hold of me from behind.
Why did the artist fashion you? For your sake, stranger, and he set me up in the porch as a lesson.
