Synoikia Festival

On the 9th – 10th of July, the Hellenic Synoikia festival is observed.

The Synoikia is a festival which is dedicated to Zeus Phratrios and the unification of Attica by Theseus.

This is an auspicious time to make a sacrificial offering to Eirene who was also honoured at this time.
