Epigraphic Museum Reviews
アテネ国立考古学博物館を見学した際、隣にこちらの博物館が有ったので立ち寄ってみました。展示されている遺跡からの発掘物には古代の文字が刻まれていて、テーマを絞ったミュージアムとして貴重だと感じました。 more »When I visited the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, I stopped by because there was a museum here next door. The excavation from the site of the exhibition was engraved with ancient characters, and I felt that it was valuable as a theme-focused museum.
アテネ国立考古学博物館に立ち寄った時に建物正面の広場に不思議なオブジェが有り、建物の横側にエピグラフィックミュージアムがありました。地図を見ると「金石学博物館」と言う理解しずらい表記でした。さほど興味をそそられないので中には入りませんでした。 more »When I stopped by the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, there was a mysterious object in the plaza in front of the building and Epigraphic Museum on the side of the building. Looking at the map, "Kinishido Museum" was a notation without understanding. I did not enter the inside because I was not intrigued very much.
