Serving the gods: The people of the sanctuary

Saturday, 6 December, 2014

Were there people who ensured that ancient sanctuaries operated correctly? What sorts of roles were performed by the people whom ancient visitors to sanctuaries of the Acropolis might have encountered? Today’s visitors will have the opportunity to discuss with the Archaeologist-Hosts, the personnel who either directly or indirectly and regularly or on the basis of special need, contributed to the smooth management of worship in the shrines of the Acropolis, based on ancient representations and inscriptions in the Museum. The talk will be enhanced by the use of magnifying lenses and written sources presented on digital tablets.

The gallery talk 'Serving the gods: The people of the sanctuary' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
