Archaeologists Find First Ancient Oracle to Apollo in Athens

The well dates back 1800 years but the prophecy at the sanctuary was evidently much older, archaeologist says.

Russia says it will not attend historic all-Orthodox meeting

The Russian Orthodox Church said on Monday it would not go to a historic meeting of all of the world's Orthodox churches because other churches have walked out.

The meeting on the Greek island of Crete due to start on Sunday could be the first in more than a millennium.

Unlike the Roman Catholics, the Orthodox churches are independent and have their own leadership.

Orthodox church leaders haven't held such a meeting since the year 787, when the last of the seven councils recognized by both Orthodox and Catholics, was held. The “great schism” that divided the Roman Catholics and the Orthodox followed in 1054 amid disputes over the Vatican's power.

Cyprus priest punches best man at wedding

The best man slapped the groom on the back, which is an old Cypriot wedding custom. The priest punching the best man would be an innovation.

The Federation of Aviation Administration (OSYPA) have called a five-day strike from 00:01 local time Monday, 20/06/16 - 23:59 on Friday 24/06/2016. From what I've heard, major airports handling international flights won't be affected but regional airports and internal flights will be affected. Not sure whether Kef is considered a "major airport"!
