Athenians ... get down to work

How did the ancient Athenians spend their days? Did they all have to work or only some of them? And what about women? Did they also work? Which are the professions that no longer exist and which have survived up to modern times? Pottery makers and vase-painters, sculptors and painters, metal smiths, tanners, doctors, bakers, washers and many others can be found in the Museum’s Galleries and reveal the people of labour and some of the professions of antiquity.

The program is created and carried out by the Department of Educational Programs of the Acropolis Museum.
