DESCRIPTION
The Legend
With more than 23.000 infantry and 3.500 cavalry, Rome defeated Greece in Corinth, the year 146 BC. But the defeat in battle became a victory of civilizations. Roman culture was highly influenced by Greek language, education, architecture, philosophy and way of life.
As Horace said: "Captive Greece captured her rude conqueror".
The Chessmen
Fierce, local and international wars characterized that period. Their ferocity is symbolized by the aggressiveness of the Pawn and the Knight. The posture of the King and Queen indicates their unquestionable leadership. The Bishop figure reveals his consideration for the imminent battle. Finally the Castle is a reproduction of a pillar, the basic symbol of the architectural style during the Greek-Roman period.
