Athena is an ancient Greek goddess associated with wisdom, handicraft, and warfare. She is usually shown in art wearing a helmet and holding a spear. Her major symbols include owls, olive trees, snakes, and the #gorgoneion * In Greek mythology, Athena was believed to have been born from the head of her father #Zeus. In the founding myth of #Athens, Athena bested #Poseidon in a competition over patronage of the city by creating the first #olivetree. * * #Athena#Athene#goddess#wisdom#warfare#wisdom#greekmyths#ancientgreekmythology#greek#mythology#classics#myths#ancientgreece#greekmythology#greece#sculpture#art#heritage#legacy#morethan2000yearsago#mentora#dictionary

Myth Busted: The Ancient Greeks believed Redheads were vampires🧛‍♀️ ..... . . THE ANCIENT GREEKS WERE POSITIVE REDHEADS BECAME VAMPIRES WHEN THEY DIED They burned their bodies to stop them from rising from the grave. We can only imagine the fear and hysteria surrounding redheads at the time. It couldn’t have been much fun to be ginger.. and Greek.

"Sandalizomene" or the "Sandal Binder"-- Nike unbinding her sandal. From the parapet of the Temple of Athena Nike. Around the end of the 5th cent BC. A #masterpiece. I was #amazed by the effortless #beauty of this relief sculpture. The transparent drapery clinging to the body, as if wet, is highly representative of the so-called "rich style." #AcropolisMuseum#Acropolis#Parthenon#Athens#Greece#ancientGreece#incredible#amazingplaces#arthistory#Greekart

The Old Gods did not die, they just withdrew, they sleep amongst the silvery olive trees, in green groves heavy with ancient life. Listen at dawn and you'll hear the sound of a pipe fluting through the turning leaves. He is dancing. #mythology#folklore#magic#pagan#ancientgreece#oldstories#olivegroves

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without accepting it." - Aristotle Aristotle spoke about the need to play with ideas - even if they are uncomfortable - so as to engage in the practice of thinking and arriving at a conclusion from different perspectives. This is a skill that seems to be gradually fading from our intellectual discourse since some ideas and concepts are branded undesirable, in effect making it harder to have a civilized dialogue. #quotestoinspire#quotes#thinkers_and_writers#thinker#aristotle#wordsofwisdom#wisequotes#philosophy#philosophers#ancientgreece Original image by @quotedthinkers.

We only have one (almost) complete play by Menander-- most of what we have are parts and fragments-- but he is the best known representative of the #Athenian New Comedy. His record at the City Dionysia is unknown but he must have been successful enough to have a statue built in his honor beside the great tragedians Sophocles, Aeschylus and Euripides. #GreekTheatre#comedy#tragedy#Theatre of #Dionysus#Acropolis#Parthenon#Athens#Greece#classicalGreece#ancientGreece#amazingplaces#incredible

"Sembra che questo nome abbia una qualche attinenza con la parola nunzio, ladro e ingannatore nei discorsi...Ora noi, abbellendo come crediamo il suo nome, lo chiamiamo Hermes." ~Platone "L'apparente gentilezza di quegli occhi dorati celava un ideale nuovo, in cui la forza fisica si univa a quella del carattere e della mente... Se mandavi in collera lei, mandavi in collera Zeus." ~Stephen Dry Mito e arte.

Greece is an incredible country to visit during Springtime. . . High up on the slopes of Mount Parnassus you'll find the ancient city of Delphi. This was the legendary home of The Oracle, who would be consulted in times of need.

“In Greek myth, Zeus' daughter Persephone was told not to eat anything while she was in Hades. She disobeyed and ate a pomegranate seed. For that, she was condemned to return to Hades for six months of every year, giving the earth its autumn and winter. Pomegranate seed, Dr. Riddle said, was used as a contraceptive in ancient Greece. He said that scientists in the 1930's showed that it reduces the fertility of laboratory animals.” - via Gina Kolata for NYT . . . #foundobject#collage#analogcollage#photograph#art#vintage#antique#catskills#hudsonvalley#upstateny#woodstock#fertility#ancientgreece#birthcontrol#loss#womensrights

Today at nerd school I learned about stars 🌌 This is the constellation of Orion (picture a gladiator huntsman waving a sword in the air with an arm outstretched holding a dead lion skin and you're basically in ancient Greece). The star circled in red is called Betelgeuse (Beetle-juice), and it's due to explode any day now. (To be fair, 'any day' in space means it could be tomorrow or in 100,000 years). When it explodes it will collapse in on itself creating a supernova that will burn so brightly we will be able to see it during the day for a few weeks before it dies. Once that happens, the Orion constellation will forever be missing a star, in this case his shoulder. I thought this was quite sad, but the scientist I said this to shrugged and said, "He'll be fine, it's only a flesh wound."

А С К Л Е П Е Й О Н Асклепейон - прототип современного санатория в Древней Греции. 🏥💆🏻‍♀️🧖🏻‍♀️ ⠀Священное место, на территории которого могли располагаться храмы, стадионы для занятий спортом🏟, бассейны🏊🏻‍♂️, театр🎭. Поблизости, как правило, находился минеральный источник💦 и кипарисовая роща🌳. Со всех концов Древней Греции в асклепейоны приходили больные за помощью и получали исцеление благодаря жрецам-врачевателям🙌🏻. Увы, вход был закрыт❌ для смертельно больных людей и для рожениц - священную землю нельзя было осквернять смертью, а это, к сожалению, в те времена было нередким исходом родов. ⠀Всего на территории Древней Греции существовало несколько сотен таких святилищ. На картинках ☝🏻 вы видите руины асклепейонов Коса и Эпидавра, сохранившиеся до наших дней. #историямедицины#древняягреция#асклепейон#асклепион#асклепий#эпидавр#кос#ancientgreece#kos#epidavros#asklepion#asklepeion

Diğer yarımızı arayışın ve aşkın mitolojik hikayesi (Kaydırmalı) . Plato - Symposion : Atinalı tragedya şairi Agathon İÖ 416 yılında ilk tragedyasıyla kazandığı birinciliği kutlamak amacıyla o dönemde Atina'nın önde gelen bilim, sanat, politika ve felsefe adamlarının katıldığı bir symposion düzenler ve bu symposion'a katılan herkes Aşk'a övgü niteliğinde bir konuşma yapar. Her biri Aşk'ın farklı bir niteliğini ortaya koyan bu konuşmalar aşk ve ahlak alanında Platon'un en güzel metinlerden birine, Symposion'a temel olur.
