The site of Claros is north of Ephesus in Turkey. It was within the area of ancient Colophon and 2 km from the coastal site of Notion. Claros was famous in Hellenistic and Roman times for its Temple of Apollo.

The oldest piece of information about the function of the Temple of Apollo in Claros dates back to the time of Alexander the Great. According to the Greek historian Pausanias, in his dream Alexander was told that he would set up a large new city at the base of Mt. Pagos (Kadifekale). After this dream the, king consulted the Apollo oracle at Claros and asked him to interpret the dream for him. He set up the new Smyrna ( izmir )after the oracle gave him the go-ahead to proceed.

The walls of the ancient Messinia .

The city was named after the mythical Queen Messina ,

daughter of the king of Argos Triopios . Thus began the construction of the wall , after the allied sacrifices to local gods and heroes .

The city was founded in the winter of 370 BC -369 BC of the Theban general Epaminondas , after the victory over the Spartans in the battle of Leuctra and the invasion of Laconia . Epaminondas freed Messenia from Spartan influence and chose the foot of Mount Ithomi to build the capital of free Messenians . It was built almost simultaneously with the Arcadian Megalopolis to Sparta ruled by hostile states and to eliminate the influence of outside Laconia

The wall that surrounded Messina is extremely long (circumference 9 km) and time of Pausanias was already entirely stone , which caused great surprise as the customary adobe superstructure. He had two monumental gates , the Arcadian ( or gate Megalopolis ) and Laconia . At regular intervals was reinforced -storey stone square and round towers . Today is better preserved on the north side, on both sides of the Arcadian gate.

 

Το τειχος της Αρχαιας Μεσσηνης.

Η πόλη ονομάστηκε από τη μυθική βασίλισσα Μεσσήνη, κόρη του βασιλιά του Άργους Τριόπα. Έτσι ξεκίνησε το χτίσιμο του τείχους, μετά από θυσίες των συμμάχων προς τους τοπικούς θεούς και ήρωες.

Η πόλη ιδρύθηκε το χειμώνα του 370 π.Χ.-369 π.Χ. από το Θηβαίο στρατηγόΕπαμεινώνδα, μετά τη νίκη του επί των Σπαρτιατών στη μάχη των Λεύκτρων και την εισβολή του στη Λακωνία. Ο Επαμεινώνδας απελευθέρωσε τη Μεσσηνία από τη σπαρτιατική επιρροή και επέλεξε τους πρόποδες του όρους Ιθώμη για να χτίσει την πρωτεύουσα των ελεύθερων Μεσσηνίων. Χτίστηκε σχεδόν ταυτόχρονα με την αρκαδική Μεγαλόπολη, ώστε να αποκλειστεί η Σπάρτη από εχθρικά κράτη και να εκλείψει η επιρροή της έξω από τη Λακωνική

Το τείχος που περιέβαλλε τη Μεσσήνη είναι εξαιρετικά μεγάλου μήκους (περίμετρος 9 χλμ.) και στην εποχή του Παυσανία ήταν ήδη εξ' ολοκλήρου λίθινο, πράγμα που του προκάλεσε μεγάλη έκπληξη καθώς συνηθιζόταν η πλίθινη ανωδομή. Είχε δύο μνημειακές πύλες, την Αρκαδική (ή πύλη της Μεγαλόπολης) και τη Λακωνική. Σε τακτά διαστήματα ήταν ενισχυμένο με διώροφους λίθινους τετράγωνους και στρογγυλούς πύργους. Σήμερα διατηρείται καλύτερα στη βόρεια πλευρά του, εκατέρωθεν της Αρκαδικής πύλης.

Dedicata a Gigi www.flickr.com/photos/gigi49/ perchè dopo la pioggia torna sempre il sole e tutto è molto più rigoglioso..

 

Questo non è un Luogo qualunque, per quanto bello e suggestivo. Si tratta, infatti, del viale d'accesso a "L'Agnata" la residenza che Fabrizio De Andrè realizzò verso la fine degli anni 60, partendo da un antico stazzo semi diroccato, nei dintorni di Tempio Pausania

Ne fece il suo principale rifugio creando in questo luogo le sue opere più significative e negli anni la trasformò in quello che è oggi:un luogo immerso nel verde e nella tranquilltà, che trasmette serenità e pace.

Nel percorrere questo viale e i prati che circondano la casa, oggi adibita ad albergo, sembra di percepire ancora la sua presenza e secondo me, parte della sua anima è ancora qui..

Carnevale tempiese 2014

I CAMBAS DE LINNA

 

La figura caratteristica della manifestazione è chiamata Cambas de Linna (in italiano gambe di legno). I Cambas de Linna erano trampolieri con maschera facciale composta da due pezzi, rappresentanti una parte buona e una parte cattiva. Questa maschera si perse nel tempo e venne sostituita da un trucco che consisteva nel tingersi il viso con il carbone. Da alcune fotografie d'epoca si è appurato che i trampolieri raggiungevano anche i quattro metri di altezza.Un'altra maschera molto diffusa era Sa Garotta: realizzata in cartapesta o in legno finemente lavorato, veniva usata dai cavalieri nelle pariglie.Fonte di Wikipedia

 

Teos (Ancient Greek: Τέως) or Teo was an ancient Greek city on the coast of Ionia, on a peninsula between Chytrium and Myonnesus. It was founded by Minyans from Orchomenus, Ionians and Boeotians, but the date of its foundation is unknown. Teos was one of the twelve cities which formed the Ionian League. The city was situated on a low hilly isthmus. Its ruins are located to the south of the modern town Sığacık in the Seferihisar district of Izmir Province, Turkey.

 

Teos, the important commercial harbour on the Ionian coast, was one of the most powerful cities of the region until the Hellenistic period. The remains of the city lie very close to the present Siğacik, within about 30 km from Smyrna. The name is Greek but its etymology remains unknown.1

Teos was founded during the Ionian colonisation, which must have started towards the 10th century BC at the latest. According to tradition,2 the first settler of the city was Athamas with his Minyans from the ancient Boeotian city of Orchomenus. The next settlers were the Ionians under Apoecus and shortly later a third group of immigrants from Athens under Damasus and Nauclus, the sons of Codrus, and from Boeotia under Geres settled there.

The city was one of the earliest members of the Ionian Dodecapolis, as indicated by the fact that colonists from Teos and Erythrae settled in Phokea, whose first inhabitants were Aeolians. Tradition says that the fall of Phokea to the Ionians from Teos and Erythrae was considered a submission of Phokea to the kings of the two above cities so that Teos could become a member of the Ionian union.3 Around 600 BC Thales of Miletus suggested that a political union of the Ionian cities should be based in Teos thanks to the ideal location of the city exactly in the middle of Ionia.

 

History

Pausanias writes that the city was founded by Minyans from Orchomenus under the leadership of Athamas, a descendant of Athamas the son of Aeolus. Later on they were joined by Ionians and more colonists from Athens and Boeotia.[1]

Teos was a flourishing seaport with two fine harbours until Cyrus the Great invaded Lydia and Ionia (c. 540 BC). The Teans found it prudent to retire overseas, to the newly founded colonies of Abdera in Thrace and Phanagoria on the Asian side of the Cimmerian Bosporus. The port was revived by Antigonus Cyclops. During the times of the Roman emperors, the town was noted for its wine, a theatre and Temple of Dionysus. These are positioned near the acropolis, which is situated on a low hill and had fortifications by the 6th century. A shipwreck near Tektaş, a small rock outcrop near Teos harbour, dates from the Classical period (around the 6th to the 4th centuries BC) and implies trading connections by sea with eastern Aegean Islands.

It was a member of the Lydian group of the Ionian League, one of the four groups defined by Herodotus, based on the particular dialects of the cities. It was the birthplace of Anacreon the poet, Hecateus the historian, Protagoras the sophist, Scythinus the poet, Andron the geographer, Antimachus the epic poet and Apellicon, the preserver of the works of Aristotle. Epicurus reportedly grew up in Teos and studied there under Nausiphanes, a disciple of Democritus.[2][3] Vitruvius notes Hermogenes of Priene as the architect of the monopteral temple of Dionysus at Teos.

Festa di Maria Bambina.

Tempio Pausania Settembre 08.

La piccola ape si affatica tanto tutto il giorno per regalarci il suo miele: quello del fiore di corbezzolo è speciale, diverso da tutti e per questo difficile da trovare in commercio.

Il fatto di essere raro non è l’unica caratteristica del miele di corbezzolo: è un miele più amaro che dolce, forse il miele più amaro in assoluto, sapore caratteristico e unico nel suo genere.

E’ un miele molto ricercato per le sue proprietà antisettiche e viene consumato su una fetta di pane tostato o spalmato su un pezzo di pecorino. Le principali zone di produzione sono la Sardegna e la Toscana.

__________________________________________________ From the sea level to the east and towering from the 700 m plateau in the west, the peaks of Mt. Olympus reach a height of almost 3000 metres.

This sudden change in altitude has concentrated on the mountain an amazingly large variety of plants, from typical Mediterranean species to rare plants of the alpic zone. There have been observed and recorded over 1700 plant species, 25 per cent of the Greek flora. In the naked alpic zone there are more than 150 plant species. Of these, half are found only in the Balkan Peninsula, and 23 alone on Mt. Olympus.

The wildlife of Mt. Olympus includes a significant variety of species. 32 species of mammals and 108 species of birds, among which many birds of prey have been recorded. In ancient times there were lions, as is described by Pausanias, and up the 16th century, bears.

Festeggiamenti per il 100 anniversario della fondazione della Brigata Sassari

The Athenian Treasury (Greek: Θησαυρός των Αθηναίων) at Delphi was constructed by the Athenians to house dedications made by their city and citizens to the sanctuary of Apollo. The entire treasury, including its sculptural decoration, is built of Parian marble; its date of construction is disputed, scholarly opinion ranging from 510 to 480 BCE. Pausanias mentions the building in his account of the sanctuary, claiming that it was dedicated from the spoils of the Battle of Marathon, fought in 490 BCE.

 

The building was excavated by the French School at Athens, led by Pierre de La Coste-Messelière, and reconstructed from 1903–1906. The structure is still visible in situ, although the metopes are reproductions; the originals are kept in the museum of Delphi.

La Confraternita del Moscato di Gallura organizza, nel rispetto degli antichi metodi tradizionali di lavorazione, la prima edizione de “La Vendemmia del Moscato”, nelle giornate 27 e 28 settembre 2014, per rievocare gli usi tipici della “bibbenna gaddhuresa”.

La manifestazione si tiene nel caratteristico centro storico di Tempio Pausania “Città di Pietra”, nel cuore della Gallura da sempre terra del buon vino.
