COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “ANCIENT GREEK THEATRES”
Monday, April 6, 2020

Greece’s ancient theatres are magnificent silent witnesses of the spirit of our ancestors and with the simplicity and grandeur of their architecture they take us on a unique tour of ancient Greek culture. Hellenic Post presents five unique stamps that take us on a fascinating journey to Epirus, revealing the region’s rich cultural heritage. They depict the Ancient Theatre of Dodona, which was an integral part of the Panhellenic Sanctuary of Dodona; the Ancient Theatre of Nicopolis, one of the most impressive monuments in Greece, associated with the new Actian Games dedicated to Apollo; the Ancient Theatre of Kassope, with its panoramic view of the Ambracian Gulf, the Ionian Sea and the Acarnanian Mountains; the Ancient Theatre of Ambrakia, the smallest of the theatres that have been discovered to date; and the Ancient Theatre of Gitana, built in the capital of Ancient Thesprotia, many of whose seats bear inscriptions of names.
