Craziest Things Ancient Greeks Did
Check out the craziest things ancient greeks did! This top 10 list of weird and bizarre facts about the history of ancient greece has some really crazy things you probably didn't know!

Phallic Parades We have many parades, some of which are a little racy, but once a year in Athens, they took it to a whole new level. Men and women would march down the streets holding gigantic penises above their heads as a tribute to their god of wine. It was called the Dionysian celebration. 14. Crocodile Dung as Skin Cream For many of us, crocodiles aren’t a part of our daily lives and I can’t even imagine if they were. However, living next to the nile, crocodiles were a common occurrence. This led to some interesting things in medicine. 13. Female Penis Lesbians The ancient Greeks didn’t really listen to what women had to say which means there were some pretty weird ideas. Though there’s even an educational divide today, ancient Greeks didn’t understand lesbians and probably didn’t want to either. 12. Birth Control Sometimes men are held accountable for birth control, but that was not the case in ancient Greece. Soranus, a Greek physician taught that birth control was completely the woman’s responsibility. He felt that if a woman became pregnant that it was her own fault. After all, it was completely unreasonable for men to have anything to do with it. 11. Filthy Cures for Women Though today women’s rights have come a long way, but in ancient Greece, they were thought to be susceptible to impurities. That means they believed that disgusting things affected women in some ways that didn’t affect men. 10. Athlete Sweat People go crazy for anything from their favorite athlete or celebrity. On Ebay you can find anything from their tissue to their jersey. But in ancient Greek days, it wasn’t their jersey everyone wanted, it was their sweat because athletes didn’t wear uniforms or clothes at all. That’s right, whether they were wrestling or running, they did it naked. 9. Trading Roosters Even though nowadays it would be considered statutory rape, Greek men often took young boys as lovers. The older man would take the initiative to present himself before a prepubescent boy to offer a live rooster. 8. Stone Wiping Toilet paper wasn’t a commodity until the 16th century in Europe. But there had to be some way to clean up. The Greeks, like the Romans, would clean themselves with a sponge on a stick. Now that doesn’t sound too bad, but most Greeks weren’t so lucky. 7. Earwax Tasting When you went to the doctor in ancient Greece it was not uncommon for him to taste your bodily fluids. That’s how he would come to a diagnosis. He might start by tasting your earwax then if you were puking, he would take a taste of that too. 6. Cheater Punishment Divorce is at an all time high. Many of these relationships end because one of the partners cheated on the other. Apparently we need stricter punishment for cheaters. The Greeks had it down. 5. Apple Chucking Today people profess their love with flowers or jewelry, but in ancient Greece, they were direct. If you loved someone, you would chuck an apple at them. Apples were not just used as a proposal or a confession, they were an overall symbol of love, marriage, and fertility. 4. Naked Gyms Much like athletic events, gyms in ancient Greece also had a naked only policy. Afterall, gymnasium roughly translates to “school for naked exercise”. That meant that they were also men-only 3. Unibrows Women in fashion today are obsessed with their eyebrows. They wax them, pluck them and even fill them in. Well it was actually no different in ancient greece except instead of trying to get rid of extra hair, they cultivated their eyebrows. 2. Zombie Prevention Zombie prevention that is on the mind of a lot of people nowadays, but even the ancient Greeks worried about it. They were so concerned that they prepped for the zombie apocalypse as soon as someone passed. 1. Elephant Wars Our wars consist of drones, tanks, guns and ships, however, can you imagine an elephant coming at you? Alexander the Great created a unit of war elephants to protect his palace. Yes, that’s right, elephants!

Baring the Aegis - Ancient Hellenic Clothing [Hellenismos]
A relatively long video by me on ancient Hellenic clothing and how to put it one. Best used as inspiration for your own festival or ritual wear. More information on Hellenismos can be found on my blog, Baring the Aegis: http://baringtheaegis.blogspot.com. I apologize for the occasional blurriness of the video, my phone has a bit of difficulty focussing when I move around too much, it seems. Also, due to length restrictions, I had to make a few clunky editing decisions.

Lagerfeld brings Ancient Greece to Paris for the latest Chanel Cruise show
(3 May 2017) LAGERFELD BRINGS ANCIENT GREECE TO PARIS FOR THE LATEST CHANEL CRUISE SHOW After traveling the world with its annual cruise collections, Chanel came home to Paris to stage its 2017/18 show Wednesday (3 May 2016), probably the last cruise collection to be designed by Karl Lagerfeld before his retirement. The designer looked to ancient Greece as his inspiration, transforming a space in the Grand Palais with massive stone walls, crumbling marble columns, pebbles on the ground, and an olive tree. This was also a nod to Gabrielle Chanel, who had a marble Venus (the goddess of beauty) in her apartment on the Rue Cambon. Lagerfeld found modernity in the Antique. The house's iconic tweeds were used in a variety of shapes from short belted dresses to patterned columns, some with fringe at the hems. On their feet, the models wore high-heeled gladiator sandals criss-crossing up to the knee, in bright shades of turquoise, orange, and canary yellow. There were large, floaty pants and pantsuits in fabrics from pleated silk to denim, bathing suits with long transparent coverups, and toga-inspired silk robes, some cut asymmetrically off one shoulder, others with classic Antique patterns. Colors ranged from black and bronze to rust, dusty rose, cream and metallics, as timeless as the stones in the decor. Metallic evening wear came embroidered with jewels, and a series of long white silk transparent robes had thick patterned sequined bands emphasizing the waist. As for accessories, there was much for Chanelistas to choose from: layers of necklaces, cuffs at the wrists, bracelets snaking around biceps, half-gloves with the double-C logo, gilded headdresses, handbags ranging from clutches to leather duffels, oversized sunglasses with sculpted frames and a good dose of attitude. Lagerfeld's young godson, Hudson Kroenig, walked the runway, as he often does, and came out for the finale holding the designer's hand.

Subscribe today! Under Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel has made a habit of taking its Cruise collections on the road to fabulous destinations, from Cuba to Seoul, and drawing inspiration from the local culture and style. But if Lagerfeld can stage a rocket launch in the Grand Palais, as he did for Fall 2017, maybe he can also conjure the spirits of international style right at home in Paris. That he did today with a collection called “La Modernité de l’Antiquité” that raised ancient Greece from the past. Ionic columns rose in the Grand Palais, while a Greek sunset served as a painted backdrop. While you wait for Luke Leitch’s review, get the five things you need to know about Chanel Resort 2018 here. The Inspiration In Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment, a bust of Venus sat on the mantle. That served as Lagerfeld’s jumping-off point this season, with the designer saying, “The criteria of beauty in ancient, then classical, Greece still hold true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women. Or more beautiful columns. The entire Renaissance, in fact, was based on antiquity. It is really about the youth of the world in all its power and unpredictability.“ The Column Shoes Forget stiletto or block heels. Lagerfeld’s take on Greek style comes complete with Ionic column–heeled gladiator sandals. If history has taught us anything, it’s that Ionic columns are quite sturdy. The Pottery Dresses Red-and-black-figure-painted pottery was one of the most popular ways ancient Greeks depicted the human body in two dimensions. Lagerfeld reworked the motifs in column dresses with rows and rows of illustrations evoking the Greek originals. The Models Lagerfeld’s many muses came out today. Vogue cover star Vittoria Ceretti opened the show, followed by Kiki Willems, Binx Walton, Lindsey Wixson, Amanda Sanchez, and Arizona Muse. As always, Lagerfeld took his bow with his youngest model, Hudson Kroenig. The Goddesses If a breezy, wide silhouette defined the beginning of the presentation, the final looks were pure Venus. Bias-draped gowns in pale pink and cream with gold embellishments closed the show, worn by models with golden headbands and nymph-like waves. http://www.vogue.com/article/chanel-resort-2018-fashion-show

Ancient Greece Inspired Makeup
In today's video I do Ancient Greece Inspired makeup inspired by some old portrait paintings. For hair I just put 3 braids wrapped around my head since my hair wasn't curled I didn't know what else to do with them. They usually curled their hair. On their face they used white lead and if that was not available, they’d turn to chalk. I used a Yves Rocher Concealer for my whole face. Lipsticks were made with red iron oxide and ochre clays, or olive oil with beeswax. I used Yves Rocher lipsstick "Rouge Vertige" 49 For Eyeshadow they mixed ground charcoal with olive oil.

100 Years Of Beauty History - Greece
Info & Credits: Model: Olga Mavrommati | Camera/Editing: Katerina Tsakiri | Makeup: Hera Magaliou | Hair Styles: Argiro Kartsioti (Asimenia) | Styling/Accessories: Loukia Bouga | Music: YU - CHAOS & J.hardy | Thanks to Kilo Shop (http://www.kilo-shop.gr/) and Concept Store (http://theconceptstore.gr/). _____________________________________________ Video inspired by WatchCut Video (http://www.cut.com/) _____________________________________________ This is an attempt to trace back women's appearance in Greece, during the past 100 years, according to the prevailing standards of each decade (as these are reflected through photographs and films) and / or the historical events that sealed each decade, starting from 1910 and ending in 2010. The choice of the featured looks in this video was largely based on creation people. More specifically, on popular and important women of said periods, who were indicative of each decade and for which there was access to reference images, so that the video would have - as far as possible – an accurate historical background. Αυτό το βίντεο είναι μια προσπάθεια αναδρομής εκατό ετών στην εμφάνιση της γυναίκας στην Ελλάδα, σύμφωνα με τα κυρίαρχα πρότυπα της κάθε δεκαετίας (έτσι όπως αυτά αποτυπώνονται σε φωτογραφικά ντοκουμέντα και κινηματογραφικές ταινίες) ή / και με τα ιστορικά γεγονότα που επισφράγισαν την κάθε δεκαετία, ξεκινώντας απ' αυτήν του 1910 και καταλήγοντας σ' αυτήν του 2010. Η επιλογή των εμφανίσεων που παρουσιάζονται, βασίστηκε σε μεγάλο βαθμό σε υπαρκτά πρόσωπα. Πιο συγκεκριμένα, σε δημοφιλείς και σημαντικές γυναίκες, που συνδέθηκαν με την εκάστοτε δεκαετία και για τις οποίες υπήρχε πρόσβαση σε εικόνες αναφοράς, ώστε το βίντεο να έχει - όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερο - ακριβές ιστορικό υπόβαθρο. _____________________________________________ The looks were inspired by: 1910 Α Γυναίκες με παραδοσιακή ενδυμασία φωτογραφιών εποχής Women in traditional clothing from photographic archives 1910 Β Ανδρομάχη Παπανικολάου και γυναίκες αστικού περιβάλλοντος φωτογραφιών εποχής Andromachi Papanikolaou (spouse of pioneer in cytopathology and early cancer detection, and inventor of the "Pap smear", Georgios Papanikolaou) and socialites from photographic archives 1920 Μαρίκα Παπαγκίκα και Μαρίκα Κοτοπούλη Singer Marika Papaghika and actress Marika Kotopouli 1930 Ελένη Παπαδάκη Actress Eleni Papadaki 1940 Α Σοφία Βέμπο Singer Sophia Vebo 1940 Β Μαρία Παντίσκα, στην εμβληματική φωτογραφία του Dmitri Kessel από τη Σφαγή του Διστόμου (που δημοσιεύτηκε στο περιοδικό LIFE, το 1944) A Dmitri Kessel's iconic photograph, which was published in LIFE magazine on 11/29/1944 (Maria Pantiska, a Greek woman from Distomo village, weeps for her mother, who was killed by German soldiers, four months ago, in what would become the notorious Distomo Massacre.) 1940 C Φωτογραφικό έργο “Με τους αντάρτες στα βουνά” του Σπύρου Μελετζή A photo project by Spiros Meletzis, entitled “Being with the partisans on the mountains” 1950 Μελίνα Μερκούρη, όπως εμφανίζεται στην ταινία “Στέλλα” (1955) του Μιχάλη Κακογιάννη Actress and politician Melina Merkouri, from the 1955 film “Stella”, directed by Michalis Kakogiannis 1960 Τζένη Καρέζη και Νόρα Βαλσάμη Actresses Jenny Karezi and Nora Valsami 1970 Έλενα Ναθαναήλ, όπως εμφανίζεται στις ταινίες “Εκείνο το καλοκαίρι” (1971) του Βασίλη Γεωργιάδη και“Αναζήτησις” (1972) του Ερρίκου Ανδρέου Actress Elena Nathanael, from 1971 film “Ekeino to kalokairi”, directed by Vassilis Georgiadis and 1972 film “Anazitisis”, directed by Errikos Andreou 1980 Α “Ρόδα, Τσάντα και Κοπάνα” (1982) του Όμηρου Ευστρατιάδη A 1982 film “Roda, tsanta kai kopana”, directed by Omiros Efstratiadis 1980 Β “Έλα ν' αγαπηθούμε ντάρλινγκ” (1984) του Γιάννη Δαλιανίδη A 1984 film “Ela n' agapithoume darling”, directed by Giannis Dalianidis Οι εμφανίσεις των δεκαετιών 1990, 2000 και 2010, βασίζονται κυρίως στα βιώματα και τις παρατηρήσεις των εμπλεκομένων στην παραγωγή του βίντεο. The 1990's, 2000's and 2010's appearances, are mainly based on personal experiences and observations of the people involved in this video production. _____________________________________________ Contact: [email protected] _____________________________________________

BIZARRE Things The Ancient Greeks Did
Strangest things the Ancient Greeks did! Unusual stuff the ancient Greeks did that may seem like crazy and weird facts to us today 15. The Musical Fruit - Nowadays it’s all paper slips and electronic processes, but back in Ancient Greece voting was an entirely different story. Any guesses at how they performed this political practice? That’s right; they used beans! Not only are these legumes great for consumption, but they also worked wonders when it came to electing new officials. The tradition began with the candidates placing their helmets in a line, facing upward. People would choose their preferential aspirant by placing a bean or pebble in that person’s helmet. After the votes were cast, the beans were counted and whoever had the most would win the election. It was as simple as that! The term “spill the beans” has its roots in this ancient practice as well. Although they used this method to vote for political candidates, they also used it to vote on other matters. People received one white bean and one black bean. The white bean meant “yes” and the black bean meant “no.” Voters dropped their legume of choice in a jar, and once voting concluded, they counted the white and black beans. However, if somebody accidentally overturned the jar ahead of time, the beans spilled out, and the outcome was no longer a secret. 14. Birthday Suit - We’ve all grown to love the ever-expanding athletic clothing industry. However, back in Ancient Greece, nothing like that existed. In fact, wearing any covering was prohibited while men pumped iron...or bulls… in the gym. The Ancient Greeks gave a lot of attention to their physiques, so it isn’t shocking that they were nude during exercise. Even the origin of the word “gymnasium” comes from the Greek word “gymnos,” which means naked. Plus, they oiled themselves up before weightlifting routines, giving “extra virgin olive oil” a whole new meaning. People would frown upon these traditions in the typical Planet Fitness. But, considering their vast achievements in the athletic world, one can’t help but think the Ancient Greeks were on to something. 13. Barrel of Fun - There are plenty of things that come in barrels: wine, ale, monkeys, etcetera. However, we aren’t talking about any of those things. Back in Ancient Greece, it was said that a particular philosopher spent many hours in one of these wooden containers. Diogenes the Cynic was known for his criticisms of city life and culture. He was a simplistic man who believed that he belonged to the entire world instead of just his country. Although Diogenes was said to have slept wherever he wanted to, he even enjoyed napping inside barrels often enough to be depicted in one of them centuries later. 12. An Apple a Day - We’ve all been spoiled with the extravagant marriage proposals of the modern day, the dozen rose anniversary gifts, and the cutesy Valentine’s Day cards we receive in February every year. However, back in Ancient Greece things were a bit rougher. They say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but with how the Greeks used apples they probably had more doctor visits. A man would hurl one of these Granny Smiths at the woman he wanted to marry. If she caught it, they’d tie the knot in no time. But if she didn’t, she either wasn’t interested or maybe she just wasn’t a fan of flying fruit. 11. Caterpillar Brows - In recent times, it was common for women to pluck their eyebrows to the point of having nearly nothing left. But, fuller brows have been making a comeback lately. However, these bushier eyebrows are nothing compared to what the Ancient Greeks considered “on fleek” back in the day. Although they didn’t necessarily want women to sport full-on unibrows; they preferred dense eyebrows that almost touched in the middle. They wanted them to appear connected, without actually joining together. In fact, ladies often filled in the middle section of their eyebrows to meet those interesting standards.

Top 10 Terrifying Things The Ancient Greeks Did
Top 10 Terrifying Things The Ancient Greeks Did https://www.youtube.com/user/jacobsmith6754 The Greeks were philosophers. They were the fathers of democracy, men of a more civilized time who lived lives of meaning in the pursuit of truth. On paper, anyway. Everyday life, though, was less glamorous than the few shining moments that made their way into history. Real life in ancient Greece was difficult, dirty, and often truly disgusting. Let’s aim for 30 likes, so go down and drop a like on the video. With that being said let’s jump straight into it. Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/wXYv9V Video Description: 10 People Wiped Themselves with Stones Toilet paper didn’t make its way to Europe until the 16th century. Before then, people had to find their own ways to clean up. Like the Romans, the Greeks would sometimes clean themselves with a sponge attached to a stick—but not every Greek was so lucky. More often, the Greeks would clean themselves with stones. They kept a pile of pebbles at their lavatories and grated hard stone against their bodies to clean up. Apparently, these were hard to come by. The Greeks had a saying to encourage a little frugality in the bathroom: “Three stones are enough to wipe.”Other times, they’d take broken shards of ceramic pots and scrape themselves clean with that. It might not be a coincidence that haemorrhoids were a major problem in ancient Greece. 9 Slaves Had To Wear Chastity Belts The Greeks didn’t want their slaves to waste their time making love under the stars. If you were a slave in ancient Greece, there was a decent chance your owner would make you wear a chastity belt just to make sure. Greek slaves would often have to endure something called infibulation. That meant that a metal ring would be wrapped around their genitals. It would seal them shut tightly enough that even getting excited would be painful, and it could only be taken off with a key. If your master made you wear a chastity belt, you knew it could have been a lot worse. This was really just an alternative to becoming a eunuch. 8 People Washed Their Mouths Out With Urine In ancient Greece, pee was such a big business that the government had special taxes in place just for urine sales. There were people who made their living just from collecting urine. Some would gather it at public urinals. Others went door-to-door with a big vat and asked people to fill it up. The ways they used it are the last ones you’d expect. For example, they’d clean their clothes in pee. Workers would fill a tub full of clothing and pee, and then one poor soul would be sent in to stomp all over the clothing to wash it out. Which is nothing compared to how they cleaned their teeth. In some areas, people used urine as a mouthwash, which they claimed kept their teeth shining white. “I think would rather have bright yellow teeth than having the breath of someone else’s pee”. 7 Sneezing Was Promoted as An Effective Birth Control Method The Greek physician Soranus taught that birth control was a woman’s responsibility. If a woman got pregnant, he felt, it was her own fault. After all, it was a little unreasonable to expect men to do anything to stop that from happening. In reality, if a Greek woman got pregnant, it probably was a man’s fault—specifically, Soranus’s. He told women that they could just sneeze instead of using contraceptives. After making love, Soranus told women that they just needed to squat, sneeze, and rinse and they wouldn’t get pregnant. Obviously, it didn’t work. Soranus had a few backup ideas, though. He also suggested rubbing honey or cedar resin on your genitals before making love—which, if nothing else, probably discouraged people from having sex in the first place. 6 Athletes Sold Their Sweat Before competing, Greek athletes would take off all their clothes and cover themselves in oil. That was how they performed. Whether they were running or grappling with another man, Greek athletes would do it naked. By the end, they would usually be covered in filth. So afterward, the athletes scraped all that sweat, filth, and dead skin off their bodies. It would be gross to watch—but a lot worse if your job was to help out.A group of slaves working as gloios-collectors would have to do just that.

180 Seconds of Art History - Episode 2: Crash Course on Ancient Greece
Smart With Art Presents 180 Seconds of Art History Episode 2: Crash Course on Ancient Greece Written and Produced by Grant Thomas ( http://grantthomasonline.com ) Video Intro Footage by Vidveo ( http://www.videvo.net/video/blue-and-pink-ink-flows/3762 ) Theme Music by Dave Depper ( http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Dave_Depper/Compositions_3/The_Wonder ) Transcript: A lot of people only think of the Ancient Greeks as the inventors the Olympics, but they had many artistic accomplishments as well that influenced art for centuries afterward. The Philosopher, Protagoras claimed: “Man is the measure of all things” so the human body became the central focus of Ancient Greek art. Sculpture was marked by a celebration of athleticism and strength. Because of this exaltation of the human form most statues are . . . Naked. The Greeks made ceramic vessels for all kinds of uses. Some were used for drinking out of and some were used as storage of food, cosmetics, and perfume. There were three periods of vase painting. In the Geometric period, designs and figures were painted on with black slip. The figures and animals depicted were very abstract and, as the name implies, were very geometric. Black figure pottery is what most people think of when they think of Greek ceramics. Artist would paint large areas of the pot in black slip and scratch away details which revealed the red clay underneath the slip. Finally in the Red Figure period, most of the vase was painted with black slip, except for the area where the figure was depicted. Details of the figures were now painted on with exquisite detail. The Greeks worshiped a myriad of gods and had countless temples dedicated to them. Most temples were made of tall columns with a triangular shape on top called a pediment. This style of architecture has influenced numerous architects and its influence can still be seen in our buildings. The Greeks celebrated the human body in their art and built large temples. Their influence on art and architecture has lasted long after their civilization fell.

Metamorphoses, Part 1 (Creation Mythology of the Ancient Greece and Rome) Audiobook
The Metamorphoses of Ovid is probably one of the best known, certainly one of the most influential works of the Ancient world. It consists of a narrative poem in fifteen books that describes the creation and history of the world through mythological tales, starting with a cosmogony and finishing with the deification of Julius Caesar. Published around 8 AD, the Metamorphoses are a source, sometimes the only source, for many of the most famous ancient myths, such as the stories of Daedalus and Icarus, Arachne or Narcisus. Ovid works his way through his subject matter often in an apparently arbitrary fashion; however, the connection between all the seemingly unconnected stories is that all of them talk about transformation. Change as the only permanent aspect of nature is the certainty that underlies the work of Ovid, who jumps from one transformation tale to another, sometimes retelling what had come to be seen as central events in the world of Greek myths and sometimes straying in odd directions. The poem is often called a mock-epic. It is written in dactylic hexameter, the form of the great heroic and nationalistic epic poems, both those of the ancient tradition (the Iliad and Odyssey) and of Ovid's own day (the Aeneid). It begins with the ritual "invocation of the muse," and makes use of traditional epithets and circumlocutions. But instead of following and extolling the deeds of a human hero, it leaps from story to story sometimes in very cunning ways, and, because of the clever ways in which it connects the stories, the Metamorphoses were once called the "Thousand and One Nights of the Ancient World".
