Athens Archaeological Museum

 


Daniel wanted to see the Antikythera Mechanism, rusted pieces of metal that represent probably some astrological device that is apparently very important and is displayed in the centre of the room in a very pretty case with a video projected presentation. I wandered around and found a few pieces that I recognised from art texts at High School: a Kouros statue and a death mask of Agamemnon. I walked right past the Antikythera Mechanism.
