Greetings from Greece! Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
Fascinating household which was built in 370 b.C. and was inhabited for about a century. The Mosaic floors represent Niriida as Ippokampos and battles between Arimaspous and Grypes, Sfigon and Lefiton. It's a characteristic sample of classic and hellenistic architecture. The 1st century b.C. a burial yard was built and it got radically renovated in 1990 by the Swiss Archeological school.
Epiphany or 'The Blessing of the Waters', is held every year on January 6 throughout all of Greece. In this ritual a priests toss a cross in the waters, followed by young men diving into the frigid sea to retrieve the symbol of the Christian faith. The brave swimmer who recovers the cross is thought to be blessed with good luck throughout the year.
