At around 430 BC, a mysterious disease caused the sudden death of many Athenians. During recent works for the construction of the Athens Metro, the common grave with the victims of the plague was excavated. One of the victims was an 11-year-old girl, who was given the name Myrtis. After 2,500 years, Myrtis is given new life in this stunning exhibition featuring the young girl from the time of Pericles.
