Some Sunsets and Sunrises in Greece

ἡ ἡλίου ἀνατολή: “sunrise”

ἅμ᾿ ἡλίῳ ἀνέχοντι: “at sunrise”

ἡ ἡλίου δύσις: “sunset

πρὸ ἡλίου δύντος: “before sunset”

 

 ῏Ημος δ’ ἠριγένεια φάνη ῥοδοδάκτυλος ᾿Ηώς,

“When mist-born, rosy-toed Dawn appeared again…” Il. 24.788

I was in Greece last week for the first time (I know, I know) and I tried to follow my own advice for living, so I was up early and out late. In a handful of days we were in Athens and Santorini, but we also visited Cape Sounion and Delphi. I will post some pictures from Delphi separately.

Here is the sunset from a restaurant in Fira (Thera), Santorini
