Intro
Ilias Lalaounis, the fourth generation of a family of goldsmiths and watchmakers, was born in the heart of ancient Athens, at the foot of the Acropolis. His forefathers came from Amphissa, near Delphi, the land of the ancient oracle believed by the ancient Greeks to be the center of the known world. He was distinguished for reviving ancient Greek goldsmithing and promoting it through his collections worldwide throughout the second half the 20th century.
