Atsipades (also Atsipadhes, Atsipadhes Korakias which refers
specifically to the peak) is a modern village and an archaeological
site of a Minoan peak sanctuary in western Crete. Atsipades is
about 20km south of the modern town of Rethymnon. Korakias peak is
a part of Mount Kouroupas, above the modern village of Atsipades.
Atsipades was identified as a peak sanctuary in 1986. The site was
excavated in 1989 by the Atsipadhes Korakias Peak Sanctuary
Project, directed by Alan Peatfield, then Curator of the British
School at Athens branch at Knossos, now at University College
Dublin Ireland. Atsipades was in use from Early Minoan III to
Middle Minoan II. Finds included ceramic spindle whorls for
weaving, numerous clay human and animal figurines, ceramic lamps
and ceramic altars (a group of finds originally suggested to depict
circumcised human phalloi has since been recognised to represent
sleeved human arms).
