Greek Gods Celebrated at Mount Olympus

Saturday 25 July 2020

ATHENS (Ruptly) — A traditional festival honouring ancient Greek gods, dubbed Prometheia, took place in the foothills of Mount Olympus on Friday.

The festival, called Prometheia in honour to Prometheus, is an annual event with different activities related to Greek mythology, including theatrical shows, religious ceremonies, as well as sports from ancient Greece.

Ancient Greek culture enthusiasts were seen wearing Greek costumes, holding a ceremony at Dion Village and passing a torch with the Olympic flame to an athlete, who was in charge of carrying it to Litohoro Village. A large group of people could later be spotted attending a theatre where artists performed a play from Lucian of Samosata.

“We are here for ancient Greek events including theatrical, dance, music, name giving ceremonies and anything to do basically with the ancient Greek culture”, stated a participant.
