On the day of the Hene kai Nea, I post a monthly update about things that happened on the blog and in projects and organizations related to it. I will also announce Elaion's coming PAT rituals.

Changes to the blog:
  • Last month, I overhauled the blog. As per your request, I have fixed the tags and added the dates back onto the posts (no idea where those had gone in the first place...). If you still see something amiss or missing, let me know!
  • The Hellenic Festival Year page has been updated
PAT rituals for Poseideon:
  • 17/12 - Poseideon 5 - Plerosia - festival at Attic deme of Myrrhinus
