Athenian New Year

The 25th of June marks the Athenian New Year.

Although no official festivals occurred during this time in Ancient Greece, sacrifices were made to Athena and Zeus for protection for the coming of the new year.

This is an auspicious time to clean and revamp your shrines and finish up projects before the start of the new year

(C) T. Georgitsis
