On the occasion of International Museum Day on Saturday 18 May 2013, the Acropolis Museum continues the minting of commemorative medals, so as to acquaint visitors with small but beloved objects in its collection. This year’s medal displays a fighting rooster; the impetuous and persistent rooster was the competitive prototype for athletes and fighters in ancient Athens. As early as the beginning of the 5th century BC, alektryonon agones (cock fights) were performed every year in the Dionysos theater on the south slope of the Acropolis.

On this day, the Acropolis Museum will be open from 8 a.m. until 12 midnight, with free entry for its visitors. Museum Archaeologist-Hosts will present various programs for children and adults related to the rooster.

At 9 p.m., in the Museum’s entrance courtyard, the Orchestra of the Center of Arts and Culture of Dion will perform songs by great composers from the rich repertoire of traditional and Greek art music.
