As Greece was preparing to celebrate the bicentenary of the “Eikosiena Revolution” – the War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire starting in 1821 – it was becoming clear that classical antiquity was going to be an integral part of the celebrations. Moreover, as the bicentenary year followed 2020 – when the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Salamis was celebrated – allusions to Greece’s classical heritage became more prominent.
In his talk, Dimitris Plantzos takes account of the year’s celebrations, as well as their accompanying rhetoric, in order to examine the extent to which Greek antiquity keeps exercising its hold over Greek modernity.

Marathon, Brexiza

Marathon, Brexiza. I. Dekoulakou (ASA) reports on continued excavations at the Sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods, particularly in Rooms 24 and 25.

The floor had a fine layer of sand on which fragments of paving slabs were found, pieces of red and off-white plaster, Laconian rooftiles, coarse pottery and kitchenwares, all of which give an indication for the use of these rooms.
