ΜΟΥΣΕΙΟ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΟΥ ΠΟΛΙΤΙΣΜΟΥ
FROM 03/01/2018 - TO 14/02/2018

The Ptochoprodromic poems relate and satirise the harsh life experienced by the 12th century Byzantine poet Theodoros Prodromos or Ptochoprodromos (Poor Prodromos). Written in the common tongue, they are among the earliest examples of Modern Greek literature.


With the Ptochoprodromic poems as inspiration, silver plates decorated with mythological themes, spoons inscribed with the sayings of ancient sages and ceramic plates with dragons fights and humorous depictions of dinner and drinking parties cast light on everyday life in Byzantium, as well as providing the spark for an unusual presentation of Byzantine cuisine

Costume manager: Myra Vazaiou

Acted by Fotis Lazarou,, Elena Marsidou, Stratis Panourios and Dionysis Pifeas.


The museum exhibit will be presented by Anastasia Drandaki, Curator of the Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Collection.
