Doro Levi (1899 – 1991) was an archaeologist who practiced in the Mediterranean countries in the 20th century.[1] Specifically, Levi conducted excavations in Italy, Greece, and Turkey. From 1938 to 1945, Levi was a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.[1] Levi has published a number of technical manuscripts on archaeology such as Festos e la Civiltà Minoica, tavole I published in 1976.[2] Some of Levi's most significant work was a long term excavation at Minoan Phaistos,[3] which site is the second most significant Minoan settlement (following Knossos) and which has yielded important finds such as the Phaistos Disk and extensive Bronze Age pottery.[4]
