Aristotle tutoring Alexander , by J.L.G Ferris , 1895
Aristotle’s Lyceum, believed to have been established as the ancient philosopher’s seat of learning in 335 BC, opened to the public on Wednesday after years of preparations.
The Lyceum, an 11,000 sq.m. plot located between the Athens Conservatory and the Byzantine Museum, was brought to light by archaeologist Effi Lygouri in 1996 while the site’s setup was overseen by the head of the Third Ephorate of Classical Antiquities, Eleni Banou.
Part of the Culture Ministry’s “green cultural routes program,” the site is accessible from Rigillis Street between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily and without charge.
