Final Images of Greece
The cruise ship last stopped at the Greek Island of Patmos,
then returned to Athens. The Monastery of St. John was built
on Patmos, above the cave where St. John wrote the Book of
Revelation, final part of the Christian New Testament Bible.
This is a striking Byzantine mosaic of the chief monk who
constructed the Monastery offering up the building to God.
Back on the mainland, this is the Theater of Epidarus, the
best preserved ancient Greek Theater, known for its perfect
acoustics, which guides demonstrate. I tried to capture this
audio on my video.
The Theater of Epidaurus is 2,300 years old, but still
looks ready for prime time.
Now we go back in time an additional 1,000 years or so,
to Mycenae, and the legendary Citadel belonging to
Agamemnon, leader of Greek forces in the Trojan War.
The famous Lion's Gate is back in its proper place, minus
both lion heads. This was the oldest Greek site I visited.
We leave Greece with the friendly pelican who serves
as a mascot for the delightful Island of Mykonos.
