Η τρομπέτα είναι αερόφωνο μουσικό όργανο με μεταλλικό επιστόμιο σε σχήμα κούπας, που ανήκει στην οικογένεια των χάλκινων πνευστών. Στην αρχική μορφή της, ως σάλπιγγα, από τους αρχαίους Έλληνες, ήταν γνωστή στους Αιγυπτίους, στους Εβραίους και τους Ρωμαίους, φτιαγμένη αρχικά από ξύλο, αργότερα από μέταλλο (μπρούντζο, ασήμι) και τέλος (όπως και σήμερα) από χαλκό. Αποτελούνταν από ένα μακρύ σωλήνα σε διάφορα μήκη που από το τέλος του 1ου μ.Χ. αιώνα και μετά φάρδυνε, καταλήγοντας σε μια μετρίου μεγέθους καμπάνα.Ως στρατιωτικό μουσικό όργανο εισήχθη στην ορχήστρα στις αρχές του 17ου αιώνα, όμως περισσότερο γνωστή έγινε στη διάρκεια του 19ου αιώνα. Έχει διαπεραστική και λαμπερή τονική χροιά και μεγάλες τεχνικές δυνατότητες. Η τρομπέτα θεωρείται σήμερα δημοφιλέστατο όργανο ορχήστρας και συγκροτήματος, ιδίως στην παραδοσιακή μουσική της Μακεδονίας και της Λαμίας , καθώς και τη μουσική τζαζ και σκα. #jazz #ska #ancientgreece #valuethemusic

Athens, Greece
Achilles’ heel Born of a sea nymph and a Thessalian king, Achilles was mortal, but his mother Thetis struggled to find a way to make a god of him. According to the most renowned version, she dipped him in the icy waters of the infernal river Styx, holding the baby by the heel; he emerged from it shielded by godly invulnerability, save the part which had not been touched by the river, his heel. In that very point he would later receive a mortal blow, an arrow darted by prince Paris with the aid of Apollo. Following this tale, only reported in the now lost Achilleis by latin poet Statius (I century A.D.), the expression “Achilles’ heel” has sprung, as well as the more common name for the calcaneal tendon. Nevertheless, older poets and mythographers tell another story: Thetis, behind her husband Peleus’back, anointed baby Achilles’ body with ambrosia, the food of the gods, and overnight she burned over a fire the mortal part of him (see Demeter and Demophoon in Eleusis); once, caught red-handed by her husband, she interrupted the ritual and disappeared into the waves, leaving her son to his fatal destiny. Invulnerable or not, to Achilles was accorded to reside, after his death, on the sacred White Island in the Black Sea, eternal spouse to the fairest Helen. This sort of “happy ending”, aside from the rich evidences both archaeological and literary, which call him the main deity of the whole Black Sea, the initiation with ambrosia and fire, and some suggestive etymological theories, leaves no doubts that Achilles was in an earlier period a significant god, perhaps water-linked like his mother, who then appeared to the Greeks as the most divine between men. #athenslives #greece #ancientgreece #ancientworld #greekmythology #greekliterature #ancientgreekculture #history #ancienthistory #greekhistory #godsofolympus #🇬🇷 #achilles #thetis #peleus #iliad #homer #gods #heroes #achillesheel

Athens is a perfect place for people who love historic attractions. My favourite one is this #panathenaicstadium which is the only stadium in the world built entirely from marble. If you love sports and sports events, this is definitely a #mustsee so you can relive the history of #olympic games. 🏛🏟🇬🇷 . . My plan is to visit 3 sport events in next two days.😂😊😊⚽🏀 . . 🏀Olympiacos - Anadolu Efes ⚽Olympiacos - AC Milan 🏀Panathinaikos - Darussafaka . . #sportlover #sportlovers #basketballtime #soccertime #traveler #traveldiary #traveladdict #kallimarmaro #stadiums #ancientstadium #ancientathens #ancientgreece #sportshistory #traveler #travelpic #traveleurope #travelpostdaily . . #discoveryourself 🎩👠
Все скульптуры и картины ,которые находятся в коллекции музея , разнообразны и каждая по-своему уникальна. Смотря на них,удивляешься ,что это сделано руками человека ,особенно миниатюрные узоры. В голову не приходит как можно делать настолько живые ,правдоподобные скульптуры и картины. В музее есть на что посмотреть даже ,если не являетесь фанатом,как и я , истории и археологи,живописи. #ancientgreece #museum #ancientcivilization #moscow #sculpture
#AshmoleanAdvent Calendar Day 13 Nike This image of a winged-Nike flying towards a tripod is found on an Attic red figure pottery jug from 450–430 BC. In ancient Greece, both of these were symbols of victory: Nike translates to 'victory' in Greek, and tripods were regularly given as prizes at games or were erected to commemorate victories in battle. This tripod appears to represent the latter, and the vase itself may also have been made to commemorate a successful battle. The type of vase, an oinochoe, was traditionally used to store wine. The garment worn here by Nike bears a striking resemblance to those worn by participants in the Panathenaic procession depicted on the Parthenon frieze carved between c.443–437 BC. #AshmoleanMuseum #Ashmolean #Museum #Art #Culture #MaterialCulture #History #InstaHistory #InstaMuseum #Ancient #Object #Archaeology #Antiquities #AncientHistory #Oxford #Attica #Pottery #AdventCalendar #Advent #Christmas #Nike #AncientGreece

I wish I had a time machine to travel back to Ancient Greece and the Hellenic spirit where I'd experience fine classical art first-hand, train in Calisthenics, engage in philosophical debates in the quest for knowledge and, last but not least, indulge myself in prototypical hedonistic acts 😏#provocateur #timemachine #ancientgreece #greek #greekmythology #antiquity #art #classicalart #classical #philosophy #hedonism #provocative #museum #vienna #wien #traveller #discover #explore #jetsetter #instapassport

“The Ancient Temple of Atlantis may be in ruins, but the Guardian still lives. Beware the Guardian if you come here to rob!” Welcome to the Atlantis we built. It was created by us for an Art Direction class. Our parameters were that we are not allowed to film from more than one angle, have dialogue, or put in any chase scenes or fight scenes. The main purpose of the assignment was to demonstrate that we can create a dramatic film set. So this is what we came up with in response. What do you think?
Lineart all done, now the slightly more scary part. Colouring. #art #greek #greece #ancientgreece #lineart #sketch #staedtler #mySTAEDTLER
The gorgeous Lorena Rae for Berta Bridal Athens Collection 2019. "Athens is an ancient city in stunning Greece where culture, architecture, and history are rich. This city was not randomly chosen as the location for this collections’ ad campaign. What better city to tell the story of this luxurious collection? When each BERTA creation is a timeless masterpiece, there couldn’t have been a better match than Athens to aid in telling the story of this collection. The authenticity and vividness of the city, embraces these artistic creations made by BERTA and only amplify them". . . .
