Fascinating that the tradition started all those years ago in Ancient Greece! I love a good, solid midday nap.

Growing up in Greece back in the 70's, mid-day naps were common. Now days that most business are open 9-5, mid-day naps are less common. However, it is a tradition that I keep in the US, due to my work schedule, my nap-time is 4 PM - 5:30 PM.
 

What are your favorite Greek history documentaries/films?

What happened in the First Punic War?

Does anyone know a little about this war? I had no idea that Greece had ruled Eastern Sicily and much of Southern Italy as an extension of its political and religious culture. Thanks!

The geometric art style of the Ancient Athenians!

Did you know that the Ancient Athenians had their own distinct style from the rest of Ancient Greece? Many of the vases are destroyed and you cant see the designs, like in the picture below. But I love the black and terracotta color geometric style
