"Adonis, all charming to the sight, Ever flourishing and bright. Doomed to set and rise, With splendid lamp, the glory of the skies. Two-horned and lovely, reverenced with tears, Of beauteous form, adorned with copious hair." - from the Orphic hymn to Adonis Painting: The Death of Adonis by Peter Paul Rubens #adonis #summersolstice #summer #midsummer #ancientgreece #paganism #pagan #art #baroque #venus #cupid #orphic #sun #sungod
🌜Nyx always gives the second chance to confess. To say everything that people can't say when the Sun shines. Нюкта всегда дарует второй шанс для признания. Чтобы сказать все, что люди не способны раскрыть, когда блистает Солнце🌛 #тамараогневицкая #теньгоргоны #горгона #книга #tamaraognevitskaja #ognevitskaja #gorgon #новинка #литература #mithology #ancientgreece #night #queen #nyx #ночь

The "opa" moment in ancient Greece. A small clay perfume bottle (aka aryvalos or aryballos) depicting a flute-player accompanying several dancers, the first of which takes a leap on the air - typical move for many greek folk dances performed even today. The words written on the surface ΠΥΡFΙΑΣ ΠΡΟΧΟΡΕΥΟΜΕΝΟΣ ΑΥΤΩ ΔΕ FΟΙ ΟΛΠΑ (Pyrvias the leading dancer, to him belongs the vase) indicate that the vessel was specially commissioned for Pyrvias as a votive offering or prize. Found in the temple of Apollo, it belongs to the main exhibition of the archaeological museum of Corinth, Greece and dates back to the early 6th c BCE #greek #ancientgreece #ancient #vase #museum #greecestagram #great_captures_greece #amazing_greece #travel_greece #travelgram #super_greece #unlimitedgreece #life_greece #insta_greece #loves_greece #pottery #guidedtours #greekguide #visit_greece #ig_greece #igersgreece #team_greece #corinth #mediterranean #exhibition #mythology #apollo #history #ancientHistory

Sophocles (497-405 BCE), Athenian playwright and tragedian. His most famous work is the story of Oedipus; a tragic mother-fucker indeed. #Beard #BeardGang #Beards

🌌Nyx is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation and mothered other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death), with Erebus (Darkness). Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty that she is feared by Zeus himself. Согласно Гесиоду, Нюкта родилась из Хаоса (в изложении Гигина, от Хаоса и Мглы), является одной из первичных мирообразующих потенций. Никта родила светлого Эфира и Гемеру (День) (от своего брата Эреба, олицетворяющего вечный мрак), а также ещё Танатоса (Смерть), Гипноса (Сон), Гераса (Старость), Эриду (Раздор), Керу (Насильственную смерть; под именем кер могут также выступать несколько богинь), Мороса («отвечавшего» за рок и насильственную смерть), Харона(перевозчика умерших в Аид), — силы, скрывающие в себе тайны жизни и смерти, вызывающие дисгармоничность в бытии мира, без которой, однако, немыслим ни мир, ни его конечная гармония🌌 #тамараогневицкая #теньгоргоны #горгона #книга #tamaraognevitskaja #ognevitskaja #gorgon #новинка #литература #mithology #ancientgreece #night #queen #nyx #ночь

Things to do: Snorkelling in Toroni The uniqueness in snorkeling in Toroni is that a large part of the ancient town's ruins are underwater. If you snorkel in the harbor right under the anchored boats, you will find some wall foundation about 20 meters off the shore and another one about 40 meters off shore. These walls indicate where perhaps the shore line existed in antiquity. Over the years, earthquakes and the rising of sea levels may be the reason why these sea walls are now covered with water. 💻www.aktitoroni-hotel.gr ☎️+30 23750 51100 📯info@aktitoroni -hotel.gr
'Ostracize Tr*mp' 'Zuruckbleiben Bitte' 'Brexit wrecks it' Exactly two years ago in the week of the 2016 #brexit referendum I began this ongoing project, inviting the public to record their responses in the same way as the ancient Greeks voted, by writing on an ostraca, or potsherds. I made 150 bowls and then broke them for this project. It's now up to nearly two thousand records. I truly wish I could look back on it and say it was all a big overreaction. Tomorrow we try at least for a #peoplesvote @open_britain @csm_news . . . #ostraca #potsherd #shard #sherd #vote #ancientgreece #archaeology #handwriting #referendum #eureferendum #potsarepolitical #politicalart #particpatoryart #contemporaryart #kunst #arte #europe #european #londonartist #emergingartist #openbritain #stopbrexit

End of the classic reading course. "To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield," quoted by Mr. Zhai at the end of his last lecture. #theclassics #aeneid #vergil #ovid #ancientrome #ancientgreece #ancienthistory
Лестница из 432 ступеней ведет на вершину горы Митридат, две с половиной тысячи лет назад здесь располагался легендарный Пантикапей, бывший одним из основных греческих полисов в Северном Причерноморье... ⠀ Крайне неприятно это говорить, но сейчас лестница находится в крайне удручающем состоянии...настолько удручающем, что фильм об освобождении этих мест в 1944 можно было бы снимать без декораций... . . . . . #crimea #митридат #митридатскаялестница #Пантикапей #ΜιθραδάτηςΣτ 'Εὐπάτωρ #Mithridates #greece #AncientGreece #ΑρχαίαΕλλάδα #античность
