When Erysichthon met Demeter


21 May 2023


Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology

Pindarou 6, Athens


This activity is only available in the Greek language.

What was the relationship of the ancient Greeks with nature? Did the gods protect the sea and mountains as the myths tell us? What happened when Erysichthon cut down Demeter’s sacred tree?

In order to answer these questions, we will travel with ancient Greek technology to reach the sacred grove of the Earth goddess. A mystery waits for us. Who killed the sacred grove’s nymph? The riddle takes us through many trials and gives us one by one the clues we need to uncover the culprit.

We discover the sacred tree of the goddess Demeter and with it our connection to Mother Nature. Archimedes, Ctesibius and Philon staunchly accompany us until the end.
