Hmm?
I thought that musical notation was developed much later than that.
How could we know what style of music they played?

Actually the oldest full piece of notated music that is "alive" today is Seikilos Epitaph which was written between 200 BC and 100 AD, which means they had a form of musical notation in those times in the western world. There is however debate over whether or not the chinese first had notated music. Here's more on "Seikilos Epitaph" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seikilos_epitaph hope it helps some of you that were wondering.

Here's a picture of the second Delphic Hymn, which was written to Apollo. An interesting thing is that Apollo was a God of music (esp. the Kithara and Lyre and supposedly hated the aulos), and the first part of the first hymn was written for Kithara, and the second part of the first hymn was written for the aulos.

So, are there any people that make these early music instruments still?

I think there may be attempts at making the ancient instruments, I know that there are some people that have remade Water Organs and Hydraulis (they are different, different power sources), but I'm not sure if people still make the cornu, tibicines, kithara, aulos.
