Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos and his Italian counterpart Sergio Mattarella visited the Acropolis Museum on Wednesday, where they were welcomed by Culture Minister Lydia Koniordou.
During the visit Pavlopoulos made a special reference to Hadrian:
“Hadrian was one of the greatest emperors of Rome and, perhaps, the top one in terms of intellectual and cultural range. He was the first to disseminate in a meaningful way the Greek antiquity, the spirit and culture of Rome, to be delivered later in eternity. Hadrian rightly won the title of ‘Benefactor of Athens'”.
