About: Chrysanthe Pantages

I'm a Greek-American artist and classicist currently completing my second year at UCLA.

Chrysanthe loves integrating her Greek heritage into her studies, whether by participating in archaeological digs in Greece or by exploring the dynamic between Byzantium and the Greek world.
