More and more now days it's made by simply shooting steam from an espresso machine into the water coffee mixture in the briki, resulting in an inferior drink. If you find a place that still actually uses a stove burner to make their coffee, you can be sure it's a traditional cafe.

Virgil's death and editing of the ''Aeneid'' According to the tradition, Virgil traveled to Greece around 19 BC in order to revise the ''Aeneid''. After meeting Augustus in Athens and deciding to return home, Virgil caught a fever while visiting a town near Megara. After crossing to Italy by ship, weakened with disease, Virgil died in Brundisium harbour on September 21, 19 BC. Augustus ordered Virgil's literary executors, Lucius Varius Rufus and Plotius Tucca, to disregard Virgil's own wish that the poem be burned, instead ordering it published with as few editorial changes as possible. As a result, the text of the ''Aeneid'' that exists may contain faults which Virgil was planning to correct before publication. However, the only obvious imperfections are a few lines of verse that are metrically unfinished (i.e., not a complete line of dactylic hexameter). Other alleged imperfections are subject to scholarly debate. publisher Encyclopaedia Britannica Company year 1911 Although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures (Vampire folklore by region), and may go back to "prehistoric times", Frost, Brian J. ''The Monster with a Thousand Faces: Guises of the Vampire in Myth and Literature'', Univ. of Wisconsin Press (1989) p. 3. the term ''vampire'' was not popularized until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into Western Europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent, such as the Balkans and Eastern Europe, Silver & Ursini, ''The Vampire Film'', pp. 22–23. although local variants were also known by different names, such as ''vrykolakas'' in Greece and ''strigoi'' in Romania. This increased level of vampire superstition in Europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism.

Judaism has existed (History of the Jews in Greece) in Greece for more than 2,000 years. Sephardi Jews used to have a large presence in the city of Thessaloniki (by 1900, some 80,000, or more than half of the population, were Jews), but nowadays the Greek-Jewish community who survived German occupation and the Holocaust, during World War II, is estimated to number around 5,500 people.
