Ancient Inventions | Athens | To January 10

The Herakleidon Museum Annex in central Athens presents “The Amazing Inventions of the Ancient Greeks,” an exhibition showcasing items from the Museum of Ancient Greek Technology founded by Kostas Kotsanas in Katakolo, in the Peloponnese. The display showcases functional models of some of the most extraordinary ancient Greek inventions, including Philo’s “robot-servant” and Aeneas’ hydraulic telegraph. The exhibition has now been enriched with two new exhibits: the “turning, chirping blackcap” and the “magic dance,” as well as a series of photographs by Anthi Xenaki on 6th century BC technology. To January 10, 2016. Opening hours: daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
