Festival of the Heroines

Today, August 22, the Attic deme Erchia (south of present Sparta) celebrated a festival in honor of the Heroines. Make time today to speak the names and make offerings to the heroines who are important to you, those from myth and legend, as well as those from history, that their memory will be eternal and their fame glorious. May their stories continue to inspire us!
