The Acropolis Museum Lucky Charm

The Acropolis Museum’s good luck charm for 2017 is inspired by the masterful waterspout in the form of a lion head from the Old Τemple of Athena Polias that is dated to the last quarter of the 6th cent. BC. The multicolored head of this regal animal decorated the roof of the Temple and protected the sacred building from every evil. This exhibit can be found on the 1st floor of the Museum in the Archaic Acropolis Gallery.
