Greece - The Unknowns Soldier, Athens

The monument of the Unknown Soldier was built from 1929-1932 in front of parliament.  It is sculpted depiction of a slain soldier bearing an inscription with excerpets of Pricles Epiloph.  Commemorated on the marble wall surrounding the monument are the greatest battlers of the greek army posterior to 1821. The monument is guarded around the clock by two select troops, called Evzones, who wear the traditional uniform, a blue one during the winter and a white one during the summer.
