Plynteria (2017)

When the sun goes down it will be the Plynteria. This is the ritual washing of Athena and a very important Athenian holiday. The temple to Athena was closed and her golden dress was weighed. I have a small statue of Athena that I will be washing and getting ready for the new year. Have a good one.
