Supervised by: Prof. Jason K?nig


Academic biography and research interests

 A Graduate of the History and Archaeology department at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece, where I also did my MA studies in Ancient History. I have worked extensively on elite representation in inscriptions and Greek institutions during the Hellenistic and Roman Period. At the moment, I am working on the study of Hellenistic and Imperial-period inscriptions related to Greek athletes. I study athletic self-representation, their civic and political identities, and by extension, the relationship between a successful athletic career and politics.

My research interests are: ancient athletics, elite self-representation, epigraphy, Greek institutions and Greek education.
