It is now accepted amongst scholars who work on Minoan Peak Sanctuary material that all peak sanctuaries except Youkhtas continued their use until the end of the New Palace Period (c.a. 1400). The study of the material from Pyrgos however, shows a number of finds that are consistent with the use of the site for rituals at the end of classical and the beginning of the Hellenistic period. This discovery brings the debate on continuity and affordances of material culture again to the fore.
