Moreover, the museum houses 2 statuettes, a nude boy and a woman with pallium and cloth, a statuette of Asklepios from Kalavreia, and a few tomb steles of the 4th Century B.C.  From the cemetery areas of the ancient town (such as a remarkable tomb anaglyph with a woman's presentation in hyperphysical size), are some of the most important exhibitions of the Classical Period.


In regards to the Imperial Period, during which a series of imposing tomb monuments were formed around the town walls, mausoleum steles of Trizina are exposed such as those of Xenokratis, the orator from Kalavreia (3rd Century B.C.).

Furthermore, also exhibited at the museum is a series of capitals of the three main architectonic rhythms from the archaic to the Romaic years: 1 Doric of the 6th Century B.C., another Doric of the 5th Century B.C., and an angular Ionic of the 4th Century B.C. that is completed with 2 examples of Corinthian capitals of the Romaic Period. 1 from Methana and the other from Trizina. The second is decorated on its foremost sides with anaglyph visards, testifying that it was derived from a theatrical production.

Finally, samples of old-Christian architecture, such as capitals of that period from the wider area of Trizina, constitute an important part of the exhibition.
