Excursion to Dion with MMTRAVEL Agency

Excursion to Dion with MMTRAVEL Agency

The twelve gods chose Olympus as their place of residence and the ancient kings of Macedonia chose Dion as their summer home.

Many centuries ago, a settlement was created there, whose ruins reveal to visitors the existence of a very important Macedonian town. The ruins of an ancient theatre, a market, baths and palaces, take visitors on a journey through a faithful representation of life at that time, to discover a marvellous civilisation. Also remarkable are the findings of tombs uncovered in the Dion area.

Today, visitors can walk around the unique archaeological park that covers 200 ha, and includes the ancient town and places of worship-temples, that were located outside its walls, and marvel at the remains of this civilisation at the archaeological site and Archaeological Museum at Dion.

THE “OATH” OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT

(OPIS, 324 BC)


"I wish you now that wars are coming to an end,that you should be all happy in peace.From now on,let all mortals live as one people,in fellowship,for the common prosperity.See the ecumenic world as your homeland,with common laws,where the meritocracy govern regardless of the race.Unlike the narrowminded,I make no distinction between Greeks and barbarians. The origin of the citizens,or the race into which they were born,is of no concern to me.I judge them by one criterion,the individual virtue.

For me any good foreigner is a Greek and any bad Greek is worse than a barbarian.If disputes ever occur among you,you will not resort to weapons,but will solve them in peace.If need be I shall arbitrate between you.Let us see the god not as an autocratic despot,but as the common father of all and thus your conduct will be like the lives of brothers within the same family.

I,on my part,see you all as equal whether you are white or dark-skinned.And I should like you not simply to be subjects of my commonwealth,but members of it and partners.To the best of my ability I shall strive to do what I have promised. This oath,which we have taken tonight with our libations,keep it as a Symbol of Love"


Lord Byron - source : Don Juan (canto III, st.86)
“The isles of Greece, the isles of Greece! Where burning Sappho loved and sung.
Where grew the arts of war and peace, Where Delos rose, and Phoebus sprung!
Eternal summer gilds them yet, But all, except their sun, is set.”
