In the prehistoric architecture of Greece, as in the cultures of the ancient Near East, measurements are normally conceived in round numbers and the structures built accordingly. Thus the measurements employed can be detected from analyses of architectural remains. in contrast to the well studied and published Minoan palace and house architecture, Mycenean architecture is best studied by reference to tholos tombs, several of which have been reliably published. At that time already variant standard measurements were used in different regions of Greece.

From then on it was acknowledged as a niediwn for expressing freedom of individual thought.This achievement should be seen within an epoch-making cultural change: it is hardly accidental that, atthe same time, Hesiod (Theogony v. 27 and 28) praises the Muses' Lies i.e. the poetical fiction. Theauthor alludes to W. Stroh, E. Gombrich, A. Malraux et al.

- Darstellungen plündernder Gallier in der etruskisch-italischen Kunst. Ein Deutungsversuch
- Angela Zimmermann
Barbarian Celts plundering a sanctuary are one of the standard iconographic themes of hellenistic Etruscan art, Although this is often taken to represent the famous attack of the Galatian invaders on the panhellenic sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi, this interpretation can be excluded by careful analysis; the images can be shown to depict an exemplary attack of Gallish invaders on an Italic sanctuary.

- Ein antiker Hauch in der wilhelminischen Maienblüte
- Reinhard Stupperich
A collection of illustrated postcards with printed greetings from the workers' I st May celebrations in Gernmy during the reign of Withelm I, edited during the last days of the GDR, mirrors the then prevalent tendencies in the arts, ranging from historistical conceptions via art nouveau products up to the first traces of expressionism. They are reviewed here under the aspect of the reception of antique motives, definitely not the point of view taken by the marxist commentator. There is no way leading to a new proletarian art to be found here, but a lively reception and functional application of ancient motives taken from various sources throughout the history of art, as was typical for the classicist traditon of the applied arts of that time.

According to the memoirs of Hitler's generals their defeat in the Russian campaign was caused by the Greek or Yugoslav campaign which cost six weeks.

Moreover, according to German sources it was never intended to start the campaign before mid-June.

It was Antony Eden who invented the myth of the missing six weeks in late 1941.

This argument was taken over by the Greek government in exile in order to impress American public opinion. After the end of the war this legend became an integral part of Greece's history.
