Lesbos of the Late Bronze Age as a Cultic Center (according to written sources)

Autors: 
Solomatina Elena Ivanovna, Institute of World History of the Russian Academy of Sciences
Abstract: 

The evidence of the written sources both of the Hittite documents  synchronous to the described events and the tradition of the Mycenaean leaders’  visits of Lesbos preserved in the narrative of the later Greek authors is analyzed  in the article. As a result the obtained information testifies to the fact that Lesbos  during the Late Bronze Age was famous as a cultic centre.
