SEASONAL BEST WISHES FOR CHRISTMAS & 2018

Image: The Acropolis Museum’s good luck charm for 2018 is inspired by an exhibit of wreath presented on a marble slab displayed in the Gallery of the Slopes (Mid-1st century, ΕΜ 8124). The Archon and Head Overseer of Justice (the ‘Thesmothetis’) Mitrodoras from Marathon was presented with a wreath of myrtle by the City of Athens on retirement in recognition of his good service.  He in turn dedicated a relief representing the wreath to the God of Justice ‘Apollo under Makrais’ that was worshipped in a cave under the ‘long’ rocks, west of the Acropolis.
