Diasia

22 February 2025

On this day, the Greeks celebrated the Diasia in honor of Zeus Meilikhios (the wise), which took place in the countryside to welcome spring with solemn but joyful celebrations and also honor the chthonic aspect of Zeus. There were nightly rites with offerings of bread or pastries in the shape of sheep or pigs, sacrifices, feasts, dances and singing of hymns. #mythology #myth #legend #calendar #February 22 #23Anthesterion #Zeus #
