Panagia Gorgoepikoos is a very small but elegant church downtown Athens (beside the city' s Cathedral, "Mitropolis"). It is an unusual byzantine church (built in the 8th AD. century by order of the Athens born byzantine empress Irene) , at least for 2 reasons: it is not made out of bricks and stones (as most of the byzantine churches are) but out of slabs of marble, most of which are the remainings of ancient Athenian buildings. And the most curious fact, on one embedded fringe (propably of the 4th century BC.) one can notice curved the symbols of the 12 zodiacal signs!
