The Peak of Mount Ypaton

Ypato (or Ypation) is the name of a mountain outside the borders of Attica, in the region of Boeotia. According to the ancient traveller/geographer Pausanias, on its peak there used to be a huge statue and the temple of the Hypatian Zeus.

But as usual in the christian tactic, it was there that in 12th century a monastery was built exactly in the place that the temple was. As i heard, stones from the temple ruins was also used in the monastery buldings. They tried also to give to the mountain the same name like the monastery. But as it seems this did not worked, as still to this day the mountain still named as Ypaton. The same also goes to a small village that located in the mountain`s base.

About a week ago we arrived at this village and we took its rough countryside road up to the mountain top. Hoping that we will be able maybe to see some of the ruins of the ancient temple of Zeus. Scattered around the monastery. Unfortunately this was not possible. When we arrived (also an intresting thing was that while we were on our way up and had half of the distance covered, we met also with a huge herd of goats with their owner following in a short distance) at the mountain top, the location is build in the way that you had first to go through the monastery and then to see if there is any remains. So we stayed outside and took some photos of the breath-taking view. The official height of this peak is 747 metres.

Photos are following...

A Voice From The Past To The Belgium of Today!

Flemish, Walonish and other European citizens from Belgium, here is a familiar voice from the past. 

Leon Degrelle from a 1976 interview. 

He was from Belgium too! 

May this video will remind you that once in your country were MEN willing to fight and die for our True European Culture & Traditions. Honour them and take back whats yours, or listen to your politicians and let the non-European, oriental/african invaders and their children decide about your life and death! 

P.S. The same goes also for all European countries of today.

At The Hills of Pan

"A little beyond the plain [of Marathon, Attika] is the Hill of Pan and a remarkable Cave of Pan. The entrance to it is narrow, but farther in are chambers and baths and the so-called ‘Pan’s herd of goats,’ which are rocks shaped in most respects like to goats."

Marathon is not only just a small town in Attica. Its a name that everybody in the world knows. Starting from the Marathon run which became synonymous for long road athletic races or most the most important because of battle of Marathon that took place in 490 bc. 

However, in the plains and hills around Marathon you can found many sites of high significance. One of them is the cave of Pan and also the temple of Pythian Apollo next to it. Its the 3rd time this year that i visit this place. At the first time we were looking around in countryside roads and fields to find exactly the place and when we finally found it was quite late at afternoon. Hard to take photos that time as the road lights are almost non-existent. At the second time we searched in the swampland to find the remains of the Apollonian temple. So in 3rd time we arrived, during the morning this time, to see them all more carefully. We knew from the first time that the entrance to the cave of Pan is sealed and forbidden to the public. For this reason we tried to find another way around the hill, but it was in vain as there is a fence all around. I think next time we will be able to take some photos from closer. 

What following now is photos (All of them taken by Hjarulv) from the hill that the cave is located, the remains of the temple of Apollo in the swamp and at the end the Byzantine 12th century tower near the cave.

On The Importance of Books

"Certainly the Art of Writing is the most miraculous of all things man has devised. Odin's Runes were the first form of the work of a Hero; Books, written words, are still miraculous Runes, the latest form! In Books lies the soul of the whole Past Time; the articulate audible voice of the Past, when the body and material substance of it has altogether vanished like a dream. Mighty fleets and armies, harbors and arsenals, vast cities, high-domed, many-engined, -- they are precious, great: but what do they become? Agamemnon, the many Agamemnons, Pericleses, and their Greece; all is gone now to some ruined fragments, dumb mournful wrecks and blocks: but the Books of Greece! There Greece, to every thinker, still very literally lives; can be called up again into life. No magic Rune is stranger than a Book. All that Mankind has done, thought, gained or been: it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of Books. They are the chosen possession of men."

Thomas Carlyle "Heroes, Hero Worship and The Heroic in History" 1841
