From Thyrsos.gr: Very recently, during constructions on the railway network of Athens, a magnificent Treasure of the Hellenic History was discovered, a masterpiece of the Hellenic Culture, the Sacred Altar of the 12 Gods. Now this Treasure is in immediate danger because of the lack of interest of the Hellenic State, because of the decision of the railway company to bury it as quick as possible. And also know that the Altar and its very site were the center of Athens in Ancient Years. The holiest spot of Athens. Where Hiketes (suppliants) would ask for Mercy! As archaeologists say, it is as important as the golden-elephantine statue of Goddess Athena! This Altar is not only an archaeological remain. It is also Sacred, especially to us, the followers of the Hellenic Ancient Religion. The total devastation of it, means that the Hellenic Culture has been mutilated by the ignorant and dangerous people who rule and they do not respect who they are, where they come from, and especially where they want to lead us, the Hellenes%u2026%u201D
Please help us to spread the news to all civilized people from all over the world, and to save even the last minute the Cultural and Spiritual Treasure of our Ancient Heritage.
We the undersigned believe that the destruction of sacred religious sites for the sake of corporate interests is a serious violation of religious rights. The significance of the Sacred Altar of the 12 Gods in Athens is not only significant to native Hellenes and Hellenic culture, but it is also significant to many around the world who honor and appreciate ancient Hellenic culture and tradition. We sincerely hope that you will respect the religious rights of those who hold the Altar as sacred when making the economic decisions related to this site.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
