BREAD IN ANCIENT GREECE

BREAD IN ANCIENT GREECE
Cereals, and especially barley and wheat, have been cultivated in Greek since the Pelasgian era. It should be noted that they played an important role in the life of the ancient Greeks and influenced their character. The most ancient of the cereals was considered to be barley, but this is a matter of further research. It is mentioned more often than wheat because it was easy to produce, more efficient , cheaper and, therefore, more accessible to the people The barley, and sikrithareni breads played a part, and acquired a sacred meaning in the life of the Greeks, as far as they were used for various ceremonies, as well as the wheat The lady The food for the ancient Greeks was bread, which was made from barley or wheat. Homer gives us enough information about cereals. In fact, he called the Greeks bread eaters. Between the time of Homer (8th century BC) and that of the poet Simonides (6th century BC) the information that is given to us about bread is little, We observe in one Simonides's poem that neither if mills search nor sieve nor sludge dung manure nor to asphalt assault zii That is, the poet Simonides complains in his poem about a woman who neither wants to catch the mill, nor the sieve, nor to throw garbage out of the house, nor to sit next to the oven, because he was afraid of smoke Also in the weddings of antiquity, a fairly well-established way for the bride was the kiskino, because. Probably, the sifting was done at that time by the women themselves in the houses. With the sieves the ancient Greeks pierced the flour from the bran. With the nla kiskina they made the white flours, finely sifted, which they called flour, after a second category , which was somewhat coarser and more coarsely sifted, and they called it krimna, and finally a unified category, which was called alfita. We must emphasize that these three categories, flour, flour, and salt were just ways of preparation. In the time of Pericles it was now established that flour was a derivative of wheat and alfita was a derivative of barley. Wheat flour bread was very thin, in contrast to barley bread, which was not very thin. This leads us to the conclusion that alfita and honor were not ground in mills but elsewhere.

We also have indications that in the 5th century BC, the making of alphas was a separate profession from the bakery 'In the State of Pilate we are given the following: people to be fed, will arrive at any time either with barley, or with wheat, salt that will they bake, or they will knead it, or they will make some kind of cakes and bread. During the 5th century the appearance of the cartoons takes place. In the beginning, the bakers supplied the Athenian houses with bread, then the bakers appeared, who bought the breads from the bakers and sold them. One of the best bakers of antiquity was Thearion, about whom Aristophanes Regarding the art of bakery, Chrysippos Tyaneos gives us the following:. If you make it (the faton) from solid dough, it will become both shiny and wide for dry eating, but if made from soft dough, it will be light but oily. Kpivanikios and Fournakios favor the ultimate dough. The main ingredients of bread were Flour. Alfita, Krimna, Chondroi, Rice, Semidalis, Lentils and others The instruments for making the bread were the Krivanos, (oven), the pnos (small oven), the Maktra (dough boats), and the Plathanos (form). The ancient Greeks made many kinds of bread. In general, the breads in ancient Greece were innumerable. They all did not have excellent preparation. For this reason we will list some of them, as any further reference goes beyond the limits of the present study.
Bread, The breads, which were made from yeast (nitron).

๐—”๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜€, Bread, which were made by women in honor of Demeter during the Thesmophoria. They were usually large loaves of bread. There was also a feast for these loaves, which was called Megalartia.
๐——๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐˜†๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€. Bread baked twice (bread baked twice), ie the nut. They were hot breads, for the preparation of which a variety of ingredients were needed, such as cheese, pepper, salt. This is confirmed to us by the Athenian, that is, breads, which were baked twice, Orivasios states that the fiery breads were baked twice to be rubbed. Procopius informs us that the soldiers had in their mousses kysiras (alaines), in which they had fermented breads and carried them with them on military marches. Finally, Su is himself gives us a very important testimony. So the ancient bipyrus bread was called pakamas by the Romans, and rusk in modern Greek.
๐—˜๐˜๐—ป๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฎ๐˜€. It was the bread of the popular classes. It is considered to be the common bread, as long as it ensured satiety. This bread was also called diaper bread. Panos will say flood, or crowds. From the word panos comes the Latin Panis and today's Italian Pane, meaning bread. In various other areas, this bread had different names, such as, pekithita, lekithita ', or even' ennita.
๐—˜๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜€. It was grilled bread, and it was eaten after the meal, after dipping it in wine. It was soft bread, and is considered one of the most wonderful breads of antiquity. Lygeus Samios in a letter to Diagoras says about the breads that were sold in the Athenian market: great. At the beginning and in the middle of the banquets they are offered sparingly. These loaves were finely ground to achieve a uniform baking. The Athenian * mentions a and full-fledged episagousi dissertation called the distinct thank you, who's so kerasite the memasi and the softness and such instinct has to wlykyn D, that is, after they are full (after) the full Pleasure with the introduction to the table of the so-called breadcrumbs, which they baptize in sweet wines, thus making it soft equivalent to sweet bread.
Also, the Athenian gives us the following: the escharites and from frying pan with oil on the surface are clearer, that is, the eschariti bread, is soft, and also fried with olive oil, it is juicier. In another report, the Athenian. that is, after opening warm escharites, you dip them (dip) in sweet (syrup. And Isichios mentions something that confirms it to us, Suidas, that that is, aeschorite bread on Lebanon At this point we observe Finally, we observe that in the Bible there is a reference to the people being given ascharites and laganos at the same time,
๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ป, ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜†๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐˜€ (Thalyssa, the beginning of the harvest, also Thalysia, the offering of the first to part of the goddess Artemis) This bread was the first, which was prepared after the harvest of wheat, during the month of Thargilos (ie in mid-May to mid-June), during the feast of Arielion, to part of Artemis and Apollo. Thariglon is called the bread from the harvest first. This is confirmed by the Athenian Krivanitis. This bread is mentioned by Aristophanes to the Farmers. These loaves had a cylindrical base, and were prepared in special molds, which were covered with ashes to bake. They were white breads, which they ate hot. A report is given to us by Orivasios, a physician of antiquity, about the bread of Krivanite: and not semidale born and trivial, and the softness most often seen in the bread of the crib. I said, laying it on the ashes on the fire, I covered the top of it with a towel, as if it were coal for the most part, and in fact, from above, as the place looks like this, the bread is very dry. If it is very useful for the abdomen, (that is, it is made from well-grated semolina and the bread is softer, which is made in the kiln. with another ash, so as to create a strong hearth and above all to have the upper heating in the place where it is baked. This bread is the driest of all, It could be considered the most beneficial for the intestine). The Athenian makes several references to the krivanitis bread: a..and the krivanitis of all virtues awaits a strong gap, apt, digestible, salty for delivery, nor does it gallop.
Oginos mentions that: or not much while dispersing unleavened bread kfivanite pure of bitter wine. pre-forced, on the basis of which I learned that krivanitis bread was used in medicine, after previously dipping it in kpasi. This bread was very useful in medicine because it was well kneaded, as well as baked. Because the island was made in the kiln, which was made of metal, or clay, it was uniform, and so the bread had a special taste.
๐—–๐˜‚๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜€. Square breads, which were made with dill, cheese and olive oil, and baked in the oven. They were similar to Thergilos. The only difference was that the Cubes were made all year round in Thargilos only on the feast of Thargilia, and from the first Harvest of the year Laganon. According to the Liddle and Scott Dictionary, the laganon (modern lagana) was a thin, broad placenta of flour and oil. According to Aristophanes ka laganon, the estin bread is oiled (laganon, which is bread dipped in olive oil). From a report by Aetius, a physician of the 4th century AD, we see that they also used lagana in the tatrik ... and it was also offered in the form of a roasted hen in zoom, roasted with a healthy foot and an acyla ... that is, to give salt and raps and lagana boiled in chicken broth, pork legs, and ham with bone well boiled). Kimis Alexandrinos mentions that lagana is also made in the pan, and also that this food is very common among the Israelis.
in the names of the pan, of the lagan cap of the semolina, One could, however, assume that these spices were made to be used for the offer (today 'offer'), of Obelia, Aristophanes mentions our obolia to the Georgians, when a very common bread There are two versions of the name of this bread, a) because it was sold in the market for an obolos (obolos is a monetary unit), or b) because it was baked in the obelisk (the obelisk is a special form) The versions are confirmed by us. The Athenian Aodevelian bread is called that of obolou pipraseta, the famous Alexandria or otnovoisko optato (that is, the obelias bread is called so either because it was bought for an obolos, as in Alexandria, or because it was sold in). Those who carried the loaves were called Skewers. This is confirmed to us again by the Athenian a. ..> (that is, those who carried the spears to their shoulders during the pompons were also called skewers). Eustathios mentions in a testimony that the spear bread is called in this way, because it is bought for an obol, and according to others, because it is baked in obelisks. In another testimony, Eustathios mentions that the spear was made on the spears and not Isichios also confirms that it was sold to an obolos.

It was also made from semolina, and probably in this case it can be related to today's halva. There is a testimony about this from Athanasios the Theologian. He set up Abra4m on the stage towards Sarah and said to him: Hurry up and fall asleep.
"We believe that what Abraham asked of Sarah was something like the present halva."

So if they were giving the 'kollyra' to the Marathon Warriors as a trophy, it must have been a round shape. that is, something like today's bun.
