Welcome to the Website of the Hetairoi e.V.

The one who lives in the memories of his loved ones can't be dead; dead is only who's forgotten.
(Immanuel Kant)

We are mourning our companion, Strategos and dear Friend Achim (Phrynios). Achim was a real authority in the field of historical reenactment of the ancient world and a member of the association for many years. Our thoughts are with his wife, Marion. We wish you a lot of strength in these trying times.

Phrynios, it was an honour and privilege to know you and call you a friend!

for the association
Marius Kempf, Schriftf├╝hrer

Welcome to the website of the Hetairoi. We are a group of people working to recreate various aspects of the historical life of people in Classical and Hellenistic Greece, as well as its neighbouring cultures.

We focus on the cooperation with museums and educational institutions, but we are willing to attend events with a different focus, as long as the transfer of knowledge can be our priority. The method we use for our recreation is called Living History.

We try to stay as close to the historical original as possible for our reconstructions, and strive to always work based on the current state of scientific research.

On this site you can find information about the cooperation with us, details about our historical impressions and reconstructions, as well as general articles about ancient Greek history, which were written during our own historical research.
