-------------------------------------------------------------
The representations of monkeys are numerous in the Minoan and Theran art although the monkey is not an animal native of the Aegean. Introduced from Egypt, probably via the Levant, first as iconographic motif, afterwards as real animals, the monkey became a pet and even found a place in the Minoan and Cycladic religion.
