On the occasion of European Heritage Days and World Tourism Day from Friday 26 September 2014 to Sunday 28 September 2014, the Acropolis Museum will present the famous bust of Aristotle discovered in 2005 during excavations of its site. Visitors will have the opportunity to participate in presentations-discussions about individuals of the past in the Acropolis Museum.
Original representations, ancient written sources and rich visual material will introduce visitors to both unknown and famous existing figures of antiquity. Along with Archaeologist-Hosts they will discover the meaning of the portrait and will uncover distant but also more convincing efforts to represent possibly specific figures from the archaic period till the late antiquity.
