The archaeological site on Mount Nemrut is an ancient Seleucid Royal tomb dating from the 1st century BC. The tomb was originally built by the Armenian King Antiochus 1. The area that Antiochus ruled over was widely Multi-cultural. For this reason, he dedicated a cult to combining the Persian, Greek, and Armenian gods and traditions. Along with this was a self proclamation of deity himself. This cult did not last very long which makes this site very special. There is almost no other heritage sites where one is able to view such a combination of cultures in this way. The archaeological site contains the tomb of Antiochus along with (once) humongous statues of gods and royalty. Mount Nemrut is located in Southeast Turkey.
Thespis of Icaria was the first person ever to appear on stage as an actor and is now known for inventing acting in the Western world.

For many long years, I have had one of my most powerful alliances with this girl right here, and yet, throughout all those years, we've never taken a single decent picture together, until a few weeks ago. I would like to wish one of my favorite Goddesses of destruction and War, the Elector countess and one of the most beautiful goddesses of Nevada a glorious happy birthday. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to be able to see you go to battle for one last year and I can't wait to see the whole team again in a few weeks. #kratos#godofwar#godsofnevada#godsofwar#gods#greekgods#spartan#band#soccer#unr#nevada#universityofnevada#wolfpack#greeks

This is a fragment of the worlds oldest known #computer, the #antikytheramechanism. The #ancient#Greeks used it to predict cycles of the moon, positions of the planets and stars, even eclipses and the dates of the Olympic Games. It had detailed precision from finely tuned internal gears whose ratios aligned with the cycles of the heavens...an incredible achievement. It predates any other technology of its complexity by a millennium. Found in a shipwreck in 1900, modern science has been studying it for a century and still have not fully understood its functions or purpose. #astronomy#technology
I feel like we all have that one Friend who we can never put on loud speaker because we’re scared of what might come out of their mouth... this Guy right here, Ladies & Gentleman - is that particular Friend! 😂 Not just any friend, this guys that Best Friend (the one that you’re so close to, that even when you fight like brother and sister, you can never stay mad at for long when you have so much important sh*t to tell them) 🖤 Couldn’t ask for better Friendship goals than this... That’s my Bestie.
Celebration -Triumph -Exaltation of the CROSS today. Difficult to Suffer for Love. Difficult to Sacrifice the ego for Love. «Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach the Cross : a scandal to Jews and a foolishness to Greeks, but for both Jews and Greeks, Cross is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength». #cross#god#jews#greeks#sacrifice#ego#suffer#suffering#celebration#sign#wisdom#love
