Biogenic decay of the monuments in the sanctuary of Delos (Cyclades, Greece) - Organisms, mechanisms of decay and possible conservation treatments

The Sanctuary of Delos is one of the most important evidences of our history and amongst the most valuable cultural heritage in European culture. Since 1873 when excavations by the French Archaeological School have been started, the antique city of Delos has been extracted from the shelter of the soil and was exposed to outdoor environmental conditions.

Περίληψη:The Sanctuary of Delos is one of the most important evidences of our history and amongst the most valuable cultural heritage in European culture. Since 1873 when excavations by the French Archaeological School have been started, the antique city of Delos has been extracted from the shelter of the soil and was exposed to outdoor environmental conditions. Geomicrobiological investigations show that the Delos monuments are in a highly deteriorated state and that loss of rock material is rapidly progressing. Brown to black spotty stains of the monuments, sugaring and crumbling and strong local material losses resulting in large pits are shown to be directly connected with the growth of black fungi extensively inhabiting every monument under investigation. Chipping is a consequence of rock internal growth of cyanobacteria. The results of this study are a compelling appeal to put effort οn the conservation of the monuments in addition to further excavations. Cleaning of the surfaces to remove deteriorative organisms in combination with biocide treatments is suggested in order to save this important architectural monument of our ancestors for our descendants.
