Chaeronea, August 338 BC: A state of the question

February 28 - March 1, 2024

In the context of the exhibition “Chaeronea, 2 August 338 BC: A day that changed the world”, the Museum of Cycladic Art is organizing an international hybrid conference in collaboration with Columbia University in New York and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens.

The conference, entitled “Chaeronea, August 338 BC: A state of the question”, will examine, through the research of leading experts, archaeologists and historians, the way in which the battle between the armies of the Macedonians and the Greek cities of the south took place, as well as aspects of the commemoration of the battle by the victors and the defeated.

Leading experts from major academic institutions share the results of their research on the battle that gave birth to the Hellenistic world, the ‘new world’ that was to define, in large part, the way we still see the world today.


The Conference will be held in English

The conference will be live-streamed.
Registration on the platform opens on Monday, February 26th.

Venue: 4 Neofytou Douka, Kolonaki, Auditorium, 5th floor.

Important note: The keynote lecture on February 29 by Maria Liston will take place at the Cotsen Hall, American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Anapiron Polemou 9.
