Anahit and Aphrodite Stamps go into Circulation in Armenia

POSTAGE STAMPS DEPICTING SCULPTURES OF GODDESSES ANAHIT AND APHRODITE
PUT INTO CIRCULATION IN ARMENIA

YEREVAN, DECEMBER 15, NOYAN TAPAN. The cancellation-to-order ceremony
of the postage stamps depicting the scultures of goddesses Anahit and
Aphrodite took place at the Greek embassy in Armenia on December 14. By
the decision of the Armenian-Greek intergovernmental commission, these
stamps were issued by HayPost and Eltan company (Greece).

The Greek charge d’affaires in the RA Alekos Ikonomopulos expressed
satisfaction at the bilateral relations between Armenia and Greece. He
appreciated the contribution of the Greek post and HayPost to
strengthening the centuries-old historical links between the two
nations.

In the words of HayPost’s director general Hans Boon, the issue of
these postage stamps will promote Armenian-Greek cooperation at
political and business level.

To recap, in January 2007, the Armenian government gave Haypost (as the
national postal operator of the RA) the exclusive right to issue
postage stamps.
