New publication for Ktima Gerovassiliou

21 Jan. 2021

 Α new book called “Symposium and the symposiac ritual in ancient Athens” has been launched and added to Ktima Gerovassiliou editions. Inspired by the Symposium section of the Gerovassiliou Wine Museum, we asked Michalis Tiverios, academic and emeritus professor at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, to write a book on the subject. The idea was born a few years back when we invited him to give a related lecture for our museum.

The book deals with the ancient symposium, one of the greatest social customs of ancient Greek culture. Texts are accompanied by rich educational material, which creates immediacy to readers.
Special thanks to:

  • Michalis Tiverios, author 
  • Dimitra Terzopoulou, archeologist and scientific curator 
  • Simos Saltiel and Red Creative for the graphic design of the book and visual identity of our editions
  • Giorgos Skordopoulos for printing and bookbinding
