Night at the library
NIGHT AT THE LIBRARY
A story reveals how king Ptolemy III managed to obtain the original texts of the great dramatic poets Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. The precious texts were safeguarded in the Athenian state archives and were not allowed to be lent out. The king, however, persuaded the governors of Athens to permit him to borrow them in order to have them copied. The enormous sum of 15 talents of silver was deposited in Athens as a pledge for their safe restitution. The king thereupon kept the originals and sent back copies, willingly forfeiting the pledge.
We spent many nights exploring ancient manuscripts, priceless historical documents and secret epistles, novels, plays and poems in libraries full of legends, hidden messages and signs. And we have created an irresistible contest to be your next challenge.
