  6. Like any national anthem, I bet people only know the first verse (if they even know that)!

  9. Well Greece does possess a glorious history pre-BC, so I guess honouring all the heroes of those by-gone days may mean something.
    Alexander the Great, Achilles and Hector of Troy just to mention 3 of them
