Skolion of Seikilos (Ancient Greek Drinking Song, circa 1st Century CE)

from by Michael Levy



Skolion of Seikilos – the famous first century ancient Greek drinking song in the warming ancient Greek Hypophrygian mode, preserved in its complete form for 2000 years on an ancient Greek burial stele. This piece features in different arrangements on several of my other albums, including “The Ancient Greek Lyre” & “A Well Tuned Lyre – The Just Intonation of Antiquity”.
