Did you know? Byzantine cities in Greece were urban centers from antiquity that survived at the same location and often with the same name until the Middle and Late Byzantine periods. As the story goes, between 300 AD and 1453 AD, under continually changing circumstances, many ancient cities ceased to exist, others developed and adapted to the social and economic environment, while new ones were founded to meet emerging needs.

What: You’re invited to join the Embassy of Greece for a special presentation by Dr. Eugenia Halkia titled “Greek Byzantine Cities and Their Cultural Splendor,” which examines the transitions of Byzantine cities in Greece from antiquity until the Late Byzantine period.

Dr. Eugenia Halkia, who co-edited the catalogue of the exhibition “Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium form Greek Collections here,” on view at the National Gallery of Art through March 2, 2014.

Who: Open to general public for free with a light reception to follow.

When: Friday, January 17, 2014 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Where: Embassy of Greece ~ 2217 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. Washington DC 20008
