    Eυζωνοι evzoni

    Evzoni is the traditinional guard of Greece,
    a kind of praitorians, today is the guard and army of President of Democracy,
    a hard tough corp that has fought in most battles after 1921.

    Today is used mainly for parades, and diplomatic and other celebrations.
    a kind of army ballet tottaly different than any other in the world,
    the slow torture is named, instead of the other fast miltary corps

    every year at 19 of May there is a special ceremony dedicated to the memory of Pontos.

    enjoy the 'slow torture' of Evzoni, guard change ceremony



    the termination Evzoni is from Homer
    Homer names the men of Achilleus, the Myrmidones as Evzoni,
    it means the ones who 'well dressed' or better proper dressed.


    SO IF YOU EVER PASS FROM ATHENS
    especially Sundays when the whole battaglion march for Syntagma and back to barracks
    spend few minutes staring them, and maybe get a photo as souvenir.
    do not worry, they gave the oath of silence,
    THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SAY NO
    maybe OXI but that only with the eyes (1 time close nothing, 2 times NO 3 times Yes, if remember correct)

    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI
    ΑΤΗ ΛΑΜΒΑΝΕΙΝ ΑΥΤΟΙΣ
    ΥΒΡΙΣ ΓΕΝΝΑΤΑΙ
    ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΙΣΗ ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΟΥΣΙ ΔΕ

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Εχε υπομονη Ηρωα
    Η τιμωρια δεν αργει.
