Ok, as an engineer, especially one that is particularly interested in computers, my favourite invention is the Antikythera mechanism which is on display in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.

Yess!! It's the best, so good.

The Antikythera Mechanism is also a truly remarkable invention.

I didn't know Greeks invented the windmill? I do know that some of my best photographs taken in Greece have involved windmills.

The Greeks invented everything, directly or indirectly

Were Antiochus I of Commagene and Antiochus I Soter related?

I am super confused between these two as I have read that Antiochus I of Commagene was the one who had built Mount Nemrut(Turkey) but when I read the history and properties of the king who had built the Mount Nemrut, it is more likely "Antiochus I Soter" or his son "Antiochus II Theo" because they both had "God complex" , they were called King of the Universe and Theo(God) respectively.

Moreover, Antiochus I of Commagene and Antiochus I Soter don't seem to be related if I track their family line and they seem to rule slightly different areas but the heritage and family attributes that local Turkish guides provide about the king that is associated with Mount Nemrut is more similar to the Antiochus I Soter or his Son Antiochus II Theo. But is their any chance that Antiochus I of Commagene is related to the aforementioned Kings, like could they be his ancestors or something?

I have found not much information online as the Turkish websites either attribute the king as simply Antiochus I or Antiochus I of Commagene Theo which is absolutely wrong because no King having name Antiochus I had title Theo in the history.

If anyone could provide the clarity with a little background, I would be really grateful.

The Athens Polytechnic uprising is a critical moment in Greeces history

This uprising was led by students who opposed the military occupation of Greece in the 1970s. The students took over the Athens Polytechnic University building in protest of the occupation, and were faced with a very strong and violent response from the Greek military. Today, protesters from across the country will rebel against the government in memory of the uprising and to make their voices heard about present day issues. For anyone who is recommended in Greek history, I recommend that you read more about this uprising and its impact on Greece's politics.

This is what the traditional costumes of Greek soldiers look like

Traditional Greek soldiers are called "evzones" and were the soldiers who fought against the Ottoman occupation of Greece. Nowadays, Greek soldiers dress in modern military clothing with camouflage. Greek soldiers will dress in the evzone costume for special occasions and for guarding the tomb of the unknown soldier in Athens. This is what the traditional costume looks like

Can you pass this Greek geography quiz?

I'm so curious to see how much everyone knows about Greek geography. Personally, I know very little so it's super interesting to see how actual Greeks did with these questions.
