The archaic lion has a special story. He is originally from Paleokastro, the ancient capital of Kythira about 600 v. Chr. To 100 n. Chr. The Venetians took him to the entrance to the fortress of Chora. Under the German occupation in World War 2 he came to Berlin. By happenstance found a Kytherianer the lion in an archive in Berlin and you could have as cause the return to Kythira.
