Comparison of artifacts reported from 20 peak sanctuaries and eight sacred caves of Minoan Crete reveal as much diversity as uniformity among types of sanctuary. The presence of clay bovine figurines does not discriminate well between peaks and caves, although the numbers of these artifacts do. Several types of artifact which are typically associated with peak sanctuaries actually are reported from relatively few peak sanctuaries. Several other comparisons and contrasts are also looked at.
