The element of water at the Acropolis Museum

Saturday, 30 May, 2015

Water was a principal element in ancient Greek thought. The Athenians personified it and believed in its divine control. Visitors will have an opportunity to discuss its polymorphous presence on the Acropolis and the aqueous world in cult, in myth and in the life of ancient Athens, with the Museum’s Archaeologist-Hosts.

The gallery talk 'The element of water at the Acropolis Museum' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
