The Acropolis Museum and the Association of Friends of the Polycentric Museum of Aigai present a lecture by the Honorary Curator of Antiquities, Dr. Angeliki Kottaridis, entitled “The Palace of Philip II at Aigai: Monument-Symbol of Macedonia” to be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at 6 p.m., at the Acropolis Museum.

Dr. Angeliki Kottaridis, in charge of the conservation – restoration project of the Aigai Palace, will briefly present the history of the research, the basic principles of conservation – restoration of the monument and the reasons why the specific ones were chosen.

The presentation will focus on the new evidence that has emerged thanks to the thorough research and systematic, detailed documentation that started in 2007 and was completed in 2023.

These elements helped in the restoration of its form and the restoration of parts of it, while, in combination with the historical sources, they shed light on the functions of the emblematic building, which is a milestone in the evolution of ancient architecture, shaping the idea of enlightened hegemony, and is directly linked to top historical events that determined the course of Greece and the World.

The lecture will take place at the “Dimitrios Pantermalis” Amphitheatre and will be broadcast live on the Acropolis Museum website (live streaming). Due to limited space there will be a first come, first served basis.
