Trying on the clothes and accessories of the ancient Greeks!

Ancient Greek clothing is a particularly interesting aspect of daily life in antiquity for pupils, and can be seen in almost all ancient sculpture and vases. The kit contains a number of copies of the main types of ancient dress, both for men (short and long himatia, an exomis, and a chlamys) and women (a peplos, a sleeved chiton with himation, and a sleeveless chiton with himation). Also included are accessories such as pins, brooches and belts, as well as print and digital visual material.

Pupils can try on the clothes and become acquainted with the types of ancient clothing and the way they were worn in antiquity.

Renewal of the kit was made possible through a grant from the Association of the Friends of the Acropolis.
