Comments

Kostis Palamas, who revitalised modern Greek poetry, was a towering figure in Greek literary life. He was an ardent supporter of ‘demotic’ (vernacular) Greek and contributed decisively to its recognition as a poetic medium. His funeral in 1943, attended by thousands of Athenians, turned into a massive demonstration against Nazi occupation.
The coin was issued in bankrolls and in Proof quality along with the Official Hellenic Proof Euro Coin Set in a wooden box with a certificate of authenticity.
