Estia

Estia (Greek: Ἑστία, lit. 'hearth') is a Greek national daily broadsheet newspaper published in Athens, Greece. It was founded in 1876 as a literary magazine and then in 1894 has been transformed into a newspaper, making it Greece’s oldest daily newspaper still in circulation. It is named after the ancient Greek goddess Hestia, one of the Twelve Olympians. Estia is widely regarded as right wing in terms of political alignment and most often referred to as "conservative” and "nationalist” and is readily distinguishable as the only Greek newspaper still employing the old-fashioned polytonic system of accentuation. An "opinion newspaper” with a writing style acknowledged to be "incisive” and with a loyal readership also described as "exclusive”, Estia is often treated not merely as a newspaper but as "an institution of bourgeois Athens”. On the 120th anniversary of its publication (March 12, 2014), the President of Greece Karolos Papoulias issued a congratulatory note crediting the contribution of Estia to public life. Run as a family business for more than a century (1898–2015) and successively managed by the descendants of Adonis Kyrou, Estia is currently owned, through "Estia Newspaper S.A.”, by Ioannis Filippakis.
