Please note: this article is in Greek. National ideology: Sculptural representations of the Fillelines in Greece during the second half of 19th century: In this article I shall examine three works which were created in honour of the Fillenines Byron and Gladstone: the statue of Byron (1881) in the Garden of Heroes in Messolongi, the statue of Gladstone (1885) at the Propylaia of the university of Athens and the group of Greece glorifying Byron (1895) in the Zappeion Garden. They are important works either for the way their realization was organised and completed or for their compositional idea or even for the diplomatic quakes that they caused at the time. Moreover research into the circumstances of their production and of their reception by the public will reveal that interest in sculpture and its works in the period 1878–1888 was rather for their historic importance than for their artistic value.
