Christmas gifts at the Acropolis Museum Shop

12/11/2018

Our good luck charm for 2019 is inspired by one of the decorative details of the architecture of the first, large temple of Athens, the Hekatompedon (early 6th cent. BC). This first grand “Parthenon” signified the beginning of the great dominance of the city of Athens in the early 6th century BC. The decorative detail consists of incides, painted palmettes and lotus flowers. Υοu can see the Hekatompedon in the Archaic Gallery on the first floor.
