Greece’s ancient theatres are magnificent silent witnesses of the spirit of our ancestors and with the simplicity and grandeur of their architecture they take us on a unique tour of ancient Greek culture. Hellenic Post presents five unique stamps that take us on a fascinating journey to Epirus, revealing the region’s rich cultural heritage. They depict the Ancient Theatre of Dodona, which was an integral part of the Panhellenic Sanctuary of Dodona; the Ancient Theatre of Nicopolis, one of the most impressive monuments in Greece, associated with the new Actian Games dedicated to Apollo; the Ancient Theatre of Kassope, with its panoramic view of the Ambracian Gulf, the Ionian Sea and the Acarnanian Mountains; the Ancient Theatre of Ambrakia, the smallest of the theatres that have been discovered to date; and the Ancient Theatre of Gitana, built in the capital of Ancient Thesprotia, many of whose seats bear inscriptions of names.
