  • [01] Egyptian antiquities exhibition

    Culture Minister Mihalis Liapis on Wednesday evening inaugurated two collections of the National Archaelogical Museum in Athens, delivering to the international public two important entities, the collection of Egyptian antiquities and the collection of Eleni and Antonis Stathatos.

    The Egyptian collection dates back to the last twenty years of the 19th Century, while it is worthy to note the donation of the Egyptian government which in 1893 offered nine mummies of the era of the Pharaohs. However, the Egyptian collection is mainly by two donors, Ioannis Dimitriou (in 1880) and of Alexandros Rostovic (in 1904).

    According to Liapis, "this exhibition broadens internationally the horizon of the permanent exhibitions and places it among the great museums of the world. Greeks who do not have the opportunity to travel, can have a full rapprochement, to learn quite a lot about Egyptian civilization."
