ⓘ Akropolis (newspaper)

Akropolis was a Greek newspaper based in Athens. Between 1883 and 1921, it played a major part in the debate concerning the Greek language question, particularly in the events leading up to the Gospel Riots of 1901 in Athens.

                                     

1. History

Akropolis was essentially the creation of one man, Vlasis Gavriilidis, who founded it in 1883 and played a great part in running it until his death in 1920. Eight months later the newspaper ceased publication, although it was relaunched in 1929 and has been published intermittently since then.
