Athens - View of the Ancient City

Athens - View of the Ancient City Geography History Social Studies World History Ancient Places and/or Civilizations

This is an interpretive view of the ancient city of Athens, after its citizens (uniting with other Greeks) were ultimately successful in repulsing Persia's invasion attempts. 

Sacked once by Xerxes, Athens was rebuilt and the Parthenon was erected (between 447-438 B.C.) to give thanks to Athena, the city's patron goddess, for her help in the Persian Wars.
