Phylaki is a modern village and the archaeological site of an ancient Minoan cemetary on Crete.

Archaeology

The site, discovered in 1981, is a Late Minoan IIIA tholos tomb. At least nine burials were made here.

Artefacts found included a gold necklace, fifteen seal stones, amulets, bronze weapons and bronze utensils. Ivory decorations from a wooden box show the heads of warriors in boar's tusk helmets. Plaques found are decorated with wild goats, sphinxes and "figure of eight" shields.
