Unknown Soldier ( - )

Unknown Soldier In 1880, for the first time in Greece, a monument was erected in the island of Syros, in memory of the Unknown Soldier of the Greek Revolution of 1821. In 1932, a similar monument was erected at Syntagma Square in Athens, in front of the Greek Parliament by the Michalakopoulos government. The monument depicts a fallen naked soldier lying on the ground, wearing a helmet and holding a shield. On both sides of the sculpture, there are two inscribed phrases from Thucydides’ “Epitaph of Pericles”. Moreover, there are inscriptions of the locations where the Greek army fought during the Balkan Wars, the World Wars, the War in Russia, and in the Greco – Turkish War of 1919.
