This exhibit explores the relationship between the people who lived on the slopes on Mount Olympus near the first known altar to Zeus Olympios at Dion and the mythological gods who lived atop its peak. Among the highlights are artifacts never before seen in the United States and a group of Roman era mosaic panels that have never before been seen anywhere. The exhibit also explores the new divinities introduced by Alexander the Great during the Hellenistic period. For more information, visit onassisusa.org.
