  • [01] Archbishop of Athens sends condolences for death of Alexy II

    Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Ieronymos has conveyed his condolences for the death of Russian Orthodox Patriarch Alexy II, expressing his grief for the loss of the "very capable helmsman" of the Church of Russia, as he called the deceased Patriarch. Archbishop Ieronymos also expressed his hope that Alexy's successor will be equally worthy.

    [02] Philip II palace digitally recreated

    A digital image shows a mosaic in the royal palace belonging to Philip II of Macedon. The two-storey palace lies in the Aiges archaeological site in north-central Greece, near Vergina, in what was then the ancient kingdom of Macedonia. The structure dates to 350-340 BC, with a facade measuring 13.60 metres in length and 78 metres in height, which would make it three times the size of the Parthenon atop the Acropolis in Athens. Research on the excavation work was presented on Wednesday at the National Hellenic Research Foundation, where archaeologists descibed it as the "Parthenon of Macedonia". ANA-MPA / STR.
