Challenge 1: On the bottom of this challenge, you may find a google drive folder. Inside you may find the parts of text of the legend, which need to be composed. In order to read the legend you need to put the sentences in the right order according to the numbers they have. The legend is in Greek. You can write down the sentences in the right order and ask someone who is passing by to translate for you or use digital technologies (google translate)

As evidence you can either put the english text you translated or a selfie with the person who translated it for you. Be creative! If you find other way to translate please upload the evidence.
