The religious life of the Eretrians is reflected in the cults and sanctuaries that have been located and researched. The patron god of Eretria was Apollo Daphnephoros, whose sanctuary underwent successive phases of reconstruction, from the end of the 8th century onwards. Apart from the sanctuary of Apollo, the exhibits are also linked to the sanctuaries of Athena, Artemis, Demeter (Thesmophorion) and the North Sacrificial area. The finds from the Iseion also confirm that the worship of the Egyptian goddess Isis was the main foreign worship of the city, while the cuirassed statues from the Sebasteion bear witness to the emperorsí worship during Roman times.
