AKSRA The Valley of Muses

ASKRA The Valley of Muses - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our Name

Ascra or Askra was located upon Mount Helicon, five miles west of Thespiae. Helicon was known in Greek mythology because of the two springs located here: the Aganippe and the Hippocrene, both of which bear "horse" (ἵππος híppos) in their names. They were sacred to the Muses.

The Helicon was an emblem of poetical inspiration. There were musical and theatrical games held in the valley during the Mouseia festival. The valley of Muses was a sacred forest where are the arts were blooming. Muses were considered the source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, lyric songs, and myths that were related orally for centuries in ancient Greek culture.

We started "building" a strong brand name, "ASKRA THE VALLEY OF MUSES", as a direct reference to the place and the name of the area inspired by the face and the meaning of the muse.
We created our logo - trademark for the exportable products of the company LYMPERIS ESTATE, based on the meaning and the face of the Muse for the main product of the company, the Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
