A Festival for goddess Athena. The procession and the games of Great Panathenaia


Two ceramic vessels, which arrived in the Acropolis Museum from Toronto, Canada, become the reason to take a fresh look at the biggest and most important festival of ancient Athens. The vessels are unique and are closely related to the Parthenon’s frieze.

What is the connection and which secrets are hidden in both their decorative scenes? Clay and marble reveal known and unknown aspects of the Great Panathenaia, which you can discover together with the Museum’s archaeologists in the Parthenon Gallery.
