Eirini Spyropoulou

Ancient Greek Architecture


Eirini Spyropoulou is a Ph.D. student focusing on Greek architecture and archaeology. She received her B.A. in history and archaeology from the University of Athens and an M.A. in conservation and restoration of historic buildings and sites from the National Technical University of Athens. She also holds an M.A. in Classical archaeology from the University of Athens. The aim of her master’s thesis was to analyze the architecture and construction of the Archaic peripteral temple at Ano Melpeia in Messenia. In addition, the scattered architectural members of a Doric entablature exposed after the demolition of the modern church on the east side of the temple were examined in order to determine whether they belong to a second phase of the temple or to a building of a different architectural type.

Before joining the Department of Art and Archaeology,  Spyropoulou participated in numerous excavations and contributed to several architectural research projects that occurred in Central and South Greece.

 Spyropoulou is passionate about sketching and linear drawing both by hand and digital methods.
