Obama gets crash course in Greek mythology
US President Barack Obama received a crash course in Greek mythology and antiquity at the Acropolis Museum in Athens.
Obama toured the museum after descending from the hilltop complex where he had lingered at the base of the Parthenon and glanced around at the panoramic view of Athens.
Obama was escorted through the museum by its president, Professor Dimitrios Pandermalis. He said the marble busts and statues were “beautiful.”
