|Prince of the Lilies | 9536: “Prince of the Lilies” fresco. Knossos. The south part and south facade of the Palace is very eroded. Today one can only see foundations on tired levels. At the bottom, a tower-like projection is all that remains of the south entrance to the Palace. An ascending corridor led to the Central Court.
The section of the corridor closest to the Central Court is reconstructed. Evans put a copy of a relief wall painting here, of which onlöy a few fragments were found. On these it was possible to make out a figure wearing jewellery in the shape of lilies. The reconstruction you see here is uncertain. In Evan’s opinion, it represented the “Priest-King”. Other scholars think that it is a prince, whilst others believe it depicts a female figure. Palace of Knossos (Crete).|
