Estia newspaper, named after the goddess Hestia, is published daily in Athens, Greece. It was founded in 1876 by Adonis Kyrou I as a weekly publication and it remained as a literacy magazine until 1894 the well-known poet and journalist Georgios Drosinis transform it into a daily newspaper about politics, culture and finance.
Estia is the only daily newspaper written in katharevousa, a purist and archaic form of modern Greek which was abolished in 1976 as the official administrative language. Its said that paper is aligned with the conservative, right-wing politics and advocated free market policies. Also the use of katharevousa is generally associated with conservative politics in Greece.
The paper’s first publication got misprinted accidentally, with page 1 being on the back of page 2 on the front. Rather then fixing the editor, Kyrou decided to continue the tradition and the paper was printed the same way until 1997, when they switched to a computerized system and had to abandon their tradition due to the technical difficulties getting the page flip right.
