Artwork of Greek hoplites from the term “ta hopla” meaning tool or equipment were the most common type of heavily armed foot soldiers in ancient Greece from the 7th to 4th centuries BCE, and most ordinary citizens of Greek city states with sufficient means were expected to equip and make themselves available for the role when necessary. #history #ancienthistory #ancientgreece #greece 🇬🇷 #warriors #ancientwarfare

But before them there was a small village, the name is Side, which means "pomegranate" on the dialect of aborigines. With the time city became one the most ports, but it didn't prevent to Alexander the Great to conquer city in 334B.C. After two centures , city became a part of the Roman Empire and like it's part became a strong center of negotiation and trade. Moreover here was the largest slave market.
Søndag 🌿 & vindstille ~ jeg tenker på hva den gamle keramikkurnen har opplevd..hva den har fraktet og oppbevart..? Og hvem har laget noe så vakkert? Jeg tror det var olivenolje og den kommer visstnok fra et gammelt kloster på Kreta. I hagen har vi et stort oliventre som vi i år kunne høste 20 oliven fra.. nå skal det beskjæres og kanskje vi får like mye som naboene neste høst. Der bugner greinene tunge av oliven og vi håper på egen olivenolje en dag...så bare å jobbe på 💪🏽 #oceanlife #homesweethome #gardeninspiration #olivetree #oldceramics #ancientgreece #handmadeceramics

_Come le foglie_ “Al modo delle foglie che nel tempo fiorito della primavera nascono e ai raggi del sole rapide crescono, noi simili a quelle per un attimo abbiamo diletto del fiore dell’età, ignorando il bene e il male per dono dei Celesti. Ma le nere dèe ci stanno a fianco, l’una con il segno della grave vecchiaia e l’altra della morte. Fulmineo precipita il frutto di giovinezza, come la luce d’un giorno sulla terra. E quando il suo tempo è dileguato è meglio la morte che la vita.” Mimnermo, VII-VI sec. a.C. #greece #greece 🇬🇷 #greece_is_awesome #greece 💙 #greekliterature #greekpoetry #greekpoems #greeklyrics #mimnermo #mimnermodocet #grecia #grecia 🇬🇷 #greciaantiga #ancientgreek #ancientgreece #ancientgreece 🏛 #liricigreci . #oysterperpetual #oyster #oysters #ostriche #ostriches
Troy by Martin Russo Troy is Russo's interpretation of the Trojan War. He keeps the story pretty similar to the actual story, but he sprinkles classic Russo storytelling moments throughout. Russo decided to bring in an orchestra and they help him create a diverse soundtrack. . . . #affinitydesigner #affinityphoto #graphicdesign #typography #albumcover #digitalart #fakealbumcover #mockups #music #albumdesign #coverdesigner #nypl #onephoto #photomanipulation #dailydesign #pyramids #trojanwar #greek #greekmythology #mythology #ancientgreece #orchestral
This cat was completely oblivious to the impending storm 🐈 📍Before visiting the Acropolis, I recommend a walk through the nearby museum first to see artifacts and learn about the magnificence of this historic site. A visit to the British Museum to marvel at the friezes (that hopefully will be returned one day to the Greeks) wouldn’t hurt either 🧐 Athens, 🇬🇷 • Oct 2016
Il Palazzo dell'Achilleion è uno dei luoghi più visitati di Corfù ed è facile capire il motivo: la storia di Achille era diventata l'ossessione dell'imperatrice Elisabetta d'Austria, per la quale il palazzo fu costruito nel 1890. Il secondo piano della villa si apre verso un portico rettangolare coperto appoggiato su colonne ioniche. Davanti ad ogni colonna c'è una statua in marmo: si tratta delle nove Muse, le divinità che proteggono le operazioni artistiche e morali: la tragedia, la danza, la poesia lirica, bucolica, religiosa, epica, eroica ed erotica, l'astronomia e lo studio della storia. La statua più amata da Elisabetta era senz’altro quella di Achille (opera di Ernst Gustav Herter), collocata sulla grande terrazza del parco. Questa statua mostra l'eroe leggendario di Troia nel momento della sua morte, quando cerca di togliersi la lancia dal suo tallone, unico punto vulnerabile del suo corpo. L'estremo realismo della rappresentazione del dolore rende l'opera particolarmente espressiva. 💭 . . . . . #livingeurope #picoftheday #instatravel #ig_europa #communityfirst #euro_shots #wonderful_places #visiteurope #topeuropephoto #europe_vacations #discovergreece #TopGreecePhoto #greatshots #igworldclub_landscape #igersnature #nikon #nikontop #nikoneurope #skyscanner #wow_destinations #discovertheworld #toptravel #travelgrampics #lonelyplanet #beautifuldestinations #ancientgreece #photooftheday #followforfollowback #naturelovers #instagreece

σαν σήμερα περίπου 20 Οκτωβρίου βάση του ημερολογίου της ελληνικής θρησκείας γιορτάζουμε τα Ηράκλεια . Προς τιμή του θεού ή ήρωα για αλλους Ηρακλή , ο Ηρακλής έχει τόσες πολλές ιστορίες και αναφορές που θα χρειάζονταν πάρα πολλές σελίδες αλλά περιληπτικά , Ηρακλής : γιος του Διός και της Αλκμήνης , 100% ελληνικής προέλευσης από την δωρική φυλή και εξαπλώθηκε κυρίως από τους Δωριείς και ο Ηρακλής είναι η ενσάρκωση της αλογης δύναμης που νικά κάθε εμπόδιο , ήταν φιλάνθρωπος σε επίπεδο που οι Αθηναίοι προτιμούσαν τον Θησέα όπου και του είχαν δωρίσει τις τότε δώδεκα πόλεις της Αττικής , ο Ηρακλής χαρακτηρίζεται για το κουρασμένο και άσχημο πρόσωπο του και τους δυνατούς ογκώδεις μύες του. Το όνομα του προέρχεται από την θεά Ήρα , αν και η ακριβή ετυμολογία είναι άγνωστη έως και σήμερα και οι αντιπαραθέσεις είναι πολλες #hellenism #greekreligion #hellenicethnicreligion #ysee #mythology #paganism #neopaganism #hellas #greece #athens #hercules #greekgods #god #greek #magic #world #ancientgreece #archeologia
