Exhibition: Ancient Greek Technology

By: | April 21st, 2015 | 0 Comment
This may be the era of technology, but the ancient Greeks invented and used some of the earliest devices known to humankind, with references to robots even appearing in mythology.
And it’s this aspect of Greek antiquity that’s highlighted in a fascinating exhibition at the Syngrou Building featuring artefacts from the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology.
“The Ancient Greeks’ Most Important Inventions” runs April 20-26, and features thirty working models of such famed items as the Antikythera Mechanism, an analog computing device believed to date from around 205 B.C.; Heron of Alexandria’s automatic theater, a late-first-century approximation of modern cinema; and an automat or robot-maid credited to the late-third-century-B.C. engineer Philon.
The exhibition is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-8 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.-8 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m.-1 p.m. It is organized in cooperation with the Parents Associations of the Poros High School and Lyceum and DIKEP Poros.
