Ancient History – Athens


Archaeologists have found evidence that Athens has been inhabited from at least the fifth millennium BC. The site would have been attractive to early settlers for a number of reasons: its location in the midst of productive agricultural terrain; its closeness to the coast and the natural safe harbour of Piraeus; the existence of defensible high ground, the Acropolis (from akron and polis, or ‘city on the high ground’); and the proximity of a natural source of water on the north-west side of the Acropolis.

Traces of Mycenaean fortifications from the thirteenth century AC can still be seen on the Acropolis, including some foundations belonging to what must have been a palatial structure. The fortifications, known as the ‘Pelasgian’ walls (after the indigenous people believed to have built them before the arrival of the Greeks around 2000 BC), remained in use until the Persian Wars of 490-480 BC. One stretch behind the temple of Athena Nike appears to have been deliberately preserved in the Classical period.

There was a decline of Mycenaean society across the Greek world around the end of the twelfth century BC. Whether this was directly connected with the Trojan War (around 1184 BC), or the so-called Dorian Invasion thought to have taken place soon after this conflict, Athens does not appear to have succumbed to an attack. The Mycenaean royal family of Pylos is said to have taken refuge in Athens after their city’s fall to the Dorians. One of its members, Codros, became king of his adoptive city.

The collapse of Mycenaean civilization left Greece in political, economic and social decline, accompanied by loss of artistic skills, literacy and trade networks. The Mycenaean form of writing, known as Linear B, was completely forgotten, and the Greek alphabet did not emerge until the late eighth century BC as the new form of writing. At this time city states began to emerge throughout the Greek world, governed by oligarchies, or aristocratic councils. Thirteen kings ruled in Athens after Codros, until in 753 BC they were replaced by officials with a ten-year term, known as decennial archons, and in 683 BC by annually appointed eponymous archons.

Conflict between the oligarchs and the lower classes, many of whom had been reduced to slavery, led to a series of reforms that paved the way for the emergence of the world’s first true democracy. Around 620 BC the lawmaker Dracon set up wooden tablets on the Acropolis known as axones. These were inscribed with civil laws and punishments so harsh that the death penalty was prescribed even for minor crimes, giving rise to the term `draconian’ which is still used today. Dracon’s intervention did little to ensure order, prompting representatives of the nobles and lower classes in 594 BC to appoint the statesman and poet Solon as archon.

Solon terminated aristocratic rule, setting up a representational government where participation was determined not by lineage or bloodline, but wealth. He eliminated slavery based on debt, and restituted freedom and land to those who had been enslaved. Solon created a `Council of Four Hundred’ from equal numbers of representatives of the Ionian tribes to which the Athenians claimed to belong, and instituted four classes of citizenry.

Peisistratos, Solon’s younger cousin, became tyrant (tyrannos) of Athens in 545 BC. He ensured the Solonian constitution was respected and governed benevolently. After Peisistratos’ death, however, things took a negative turn and anti-Peisistratid sentiment grew. By 510 BC King Cleomenes of Sparta was asked to assist in deposing Peisistratos’ son Hippias. Hippias sought refuge in Persia at the court of King Darius.

Soon after, the aristocrat Cleisthenes promised to institute further reforms giving a more direct role to citizens in government. His reforms were passed in 508 BC, and democracy was established in Athens. A new `Council of Five Hundred’ (the Boule) replaced the ‘Council of Four Hundred’, with equal representation from the various tribes. Cleisthenes is also credited with instituting the system of ostracism, which ‘voted’ an individual considered dangerous to democracy into exile for ten years.

It is uncertain when the former Mycenaean citadel was transformed into a sacred precinct but by the late eighth century BC a modest temple (or perhaps more than one) stood on the plateau. The oldest and holiest cult image on the Acropolis was the statue of Athena Polias (Protectress of the City), a crude olive-wood figure, so old that Athenians of the Classical period believed it had either fallen from heaven or been made by Cecrops or Erichthonios. This sacred image of Athena was ritually ‘dressed’ every year in a peplos, a sacred robe, as part of the Panathenaic festival.

A temple is thought to have been built around 700 BC to the south of the later, Classical Erechtheion, to house the statue of Athena Polias. The first major building of which there are significant remains on the Acropolis was the so-called ‘Bluebeard Temple’, built in the Archaic period around 560 BC. The ‘Bluebeard Temple’ is thought by some to have stood to the south of the later Erechtheion. Ancient texts mention a mysterious building or precinct contemporary to the ‘Bluebeard Temple’, called the Hecatompedon, or ‘Hundred-footer’. Whatever this structure or place was, it gave its name to the principal room of the Classical Parthenon, perhaps because the later building occupies the same site.

With the expulsion of Hippias a new temple was built on the Acropolis, its foundations still visible to the south of the later Erechtheion. This building, the Archaios Naos, or ‘ancient temple’, is likely to have been deliberately commissioned around 506 BC as a replacement for the ‘Bluebeard Temple’.

The first Persian invasion of 490 BC saw the victory of the Athenians at the battle of Marathon against the forces of King Darius of Persia. The following year the elated Athenians leveled an area on the south side of the Acropolis and began construction of the Old Parthenon. A new gateway to the Acropolis was also commenced, known as the Old Propylaia.

This post-Marathonian building program on the Acropolis came to a violent end in 480 BC when Xerxes, son of King Darius, led a second Persian invasion of Greece. Athens had to be evacuated and Xerxes razed the city and buildings on the Acropolis. Under the command of Themistocles, the Athenians destroyed the Persian fleet in the battle of Salamis. Victory over the Persians was ensured after the battle of Plataea (479 BC), to the northwest of Athens, when a combined Greek army annihilated the Persians.

In the aftermath of the battle of Plataea, a vow was made by the victors never to rebuild the shrines that were destroyed in the war, preserving them instead as memorials for later generations.

Pericles, who was a general and statesman, came to power in Athens around 461 BC. He considered the oath of Plataea to have been fulfilled, as thirty years had elapsed from the Persian invasion, and proceeded to reconstruct the temples on the Acropolis. He gathered together the best architects and artists in the city and plans were drawn up to erect new buildings that would outshine those torn down by the Persians. The Periclean building programme enhanced the lower city with new monuments, such as the Temple of Hephaestus, also known as the Theseion, and the Painted Stoa or Poikile situated near the Agora (marketplace).

  1. This is the most comprehensive info I’ve seen, yet, about Facebook. Well done!One thing I don’t see on the Page that I’m managing is an ‘Info’ tab. I want to see who my customer has liked previous to me taking over as admin. Is that an app, or something I have to enable, or am I just looking in the wrong spot?Any direction would be appreciated.thxBonnie

  3. I try to do the same thing with the negative aspects of my life that may surface. If I cannot spend the holidays with my family, I at least become thankful that I have a family that still keeps in touch with me even there are oceans that separate us. Or even with day-to-day instances — if a work project is not as well-received as I had hoped, I become thankful that at least I have a job in light of the unemployment statistics of today.

  4. We have been contacted by Phillip Hill, who is claiming to be membership renewals officer for Club Class !! wanting us to pay last five years membership before we can cancel.

  5. Demographics are not as fixed as people think, and they're partly dependent on the welfare state.And take away the welfare state and you actually see emigration happening.There are other ways to change the numbers as well. Birth rates are not fixed, they're partly a product of the economic and social environment.

  8. Aloha,I hope it doesn’t happen in my lifetime. I’m a dinosaur. I like being a dinosaur. I only surf on boards over nine feet in length, with paraffin on their decks and no %#$%#& leashes. I like never talking on the telephone unless I am at home or in some pay booth of my choosing. I listen to music in my car…not voices. (unless, of course, it is a rough day and I’m talking to myself).I like grabbing a book and taking it on a plane or a train, or taking it to a park or the beach, and never worrying about it needing batteries.They have not yet made the gadget that I will read books on…

  9. Sounds delicious! Just today, one of my classes had to make a “Menú del Día” I explained to them that it is a more economical choice, but I still had some pricing theirs at 72 euros or more…!

  11. … More field negros making shit up. Go figure. Uptown Steve is living proof of why Africa is and has always been the way it is. Dimwitted and unable to handle even the slightest bit of facts constantly excusing reality and science for fantasies. It's hopeless, he doesn't have the capability to see reality and logic, when faced with facts he simply says "dat shit be racist" knuckleheaded dimwit.

  20. Most likely, you’ll need a wind policy, and flood insurance (through FEMA). Keep in mind, Florida has, hands down, the HIGHEST homeowners insurance rates in the USA, and very, very few companies will write a new policy. The state run “Citizens Insurance” program, currently writes a majority of the new policies purchased in the state.Whatever you were paying in IL for insurance, budget on an extra zero at the end of that, for a comparable house.

  31. Perhaps I could elaborate — the amateur BBS networks, like Fidonet, FamilyNet etc were mostly run on a shoestring by sysops who ran their outfit on a shoestring. Fido Technology Networks had echo conferences that allowed true many-to-many discussions (which blogs are not), and had offline readers that could select messages for reading by topic or keywords. Participants thus got to know one another, and formed a virtual community based on a common interest, even if they lived in different parts of the world.

I like your outfit and there is something with not washing your hair for 4 days…it looks great!as for your questions :I have irish blood and I may celebrate although it means literally nothing for me.

  45. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  46. Anyone with half a brain can see what's going on,…That let's you out. …they elect a rightwinger who runs up massive deficits and cuts taxes and then blames the Dem prez who gets elected to clean up the mess.I don't know why you morons on the left try so hard to pretend that 9/11 never happened? But you do, and that's why you're baffled by everything that's happened since.

  60. An additional issue is that video games are generally serious naturally with the main focus on finding out rather than entertainment. Although, there’s an entertainment aspect to keep your children engaged, every single game is often designed to develop a specific experience or programs, such as mathmatical or scientific disciplines.

  72. listen to pablo! he knows what he’s talking about. publish that article. everybody pretends they “get” digital but the reality is it’s impossible to get because it’s in perpetual motion. shut up and do something!

  73. There is another possible explanation, which does not fit economic logic. As that explanation is – we may never see that person again but we shall see ourselves again and again. For many of us living with ourselves knowing we have been an arsehole to someone is pretty difficult. So we do it purely for self interest — to be able to respect ourselves after the transaction is over.

  74. We have to be very conscious regarding healthy diet for kids. As earlier discussed that In this summer children are facing many problems during playing and in other activity due to extreme heat. So we have to give them sufficient food for their health.

  76. Gov Chime is a public figure whose earnings is gotten from the tax paying Enugu state citizens. His health status information is deceptively managed by his aids who see the seat of the governor as a personal property of the Chimes. While in an Indian Hospital, I know his salaries and allowances are still running when he is in limbo with only his aids becoming his mouth piece. Not even the acting governor in the employ of the state has spoken with him. I think this is another instance of a GHOST WORKER in office.

  77. WedÅ‚ug mnie Google Chrome OS nic nie wnosi, na pewno mniej niż Windows 7.Nie można lekceważyć Windowsa tylko dla tego, bo jest be ;)Na pewno jest o nim gÅ‚oÅ›niej w necie i trend siÄ™ utrzymuje niż o Google OS, o którym huczaÅ‚o tylko po pokazie a teraz cisza.Dodatkowo Windows 7, to gotowy produkt a Google Chrome OS na pewno nie jest nim – w pierwszych wersjach nawet menu nie dziaÅ‚aÅ‚o ;]

  78. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide. Mon problème est avec ma chaudière Berreta Novella. Par fois elle ne se déclenche pas et arrive jusqu’au température max (120C°), il aura un arrêt total du gaz. Par fois elle fonctionne correctement. J’ai contacté un technicien, il m’a proposé de changer la vanne magnétique. Je vous remercie pour que vous m’aidez

  79. Danielle, yeah I think some of his books can be pretty long but this one wasn’t and it read at a good pace. Since you like mystery/crime books I think you would definitely like this one and I imagine it will turn out to be quite different than anything else in the genre.

  80. Hey Field I keep losing my posts but I will try again.I thought that the critic missed the point and that is we can learn from Washington's obvious hypocrisy. It reminds us that we have to choose sometimes between what is expediant and what is comfortable and beneficial and what is right.And it is obvious that the negative responses show that the propagandists have somewhat succeeded because somehow black history and the history of black oppression isn't that important.

  81. Greetings! I do know that is kind of off matter but I was questioning which weblog platform are you using for this website? I am getting sick and bored with WordPress as a result of I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for an additional platform. I would be great if you happen to could point me in the route of a good platform.

  82. I knew this was you It was the honey candy theme that tipped me off! I was just thinking that I had to look up your other honey candy recipes from the other GF Friday recipe link up, and now here’s another. Beautiful photo! Can’t wait to try. Thanks for saving those old jr high candy info shees (which is amazingly insane btw).-Dana

  83. C’est vrai que l’absence de catégorie web, où le prescripteur est pluriel mais existe bel et bien (Passou champion du monde !), montre la place que prend le numérique dans la perspective des libraires (ou apparentés) – ce qui ne rassure guère dans la perception que l’on peut leur prêter en matière d’offre de contenus dématérialisés… Il faut des prescripteurs pour les prescripteurs ?

  84. Don’t creationist believe the Earth is ~6000 years old? But they don’t seem to get emotive about evidence to the contrary. No off-the-top-of-my-head idea why this should be. There’s just something about evolution that appeals to their inner primate.

  85. Gianna es una idola !! Sin dudas…que capa la enana. Definitivamente si la tego enfrente y me sale con alguna de esas, me la como.Te envidio Ju (sanamente). Debe ser alucinante tener dos con esa diferencia de edad (a pesar del trabajo).Besos a las tres,Petra

  86. Brooks, 47, a Monmouth Junction resident who has worked here since 2002. “I’ve never seen anything like this.”…The labor market has deteriorated so quickly that the state received 23,187 first-time claims for uninsurance benefits during the first week of January, the most since the week ending Jan. 11, 1992, according to the Labor Department.…The crush has been felt at each of the department’s four call centers, where they received a total of 370,000 calls in January, up 164 percent from January last year, said Denise Dusko, manager of the Freehold Township call center.

  87. looks deelish!! I have to try. I love your blog title, since that describes me. I love cupcakes, honey and marshmallow-peeps, fluff, anything marshmallow, and chicago deep dish pizza, so I won't give up ALL but have chosen to be almost vegan and raw when I can.

  88. Hola gracias por dejarnos proponer temas. Me gustaría que hablaséis sobre la leche.Unos dicen que es buena, que tiene mucho calcio, otros dicen que es mala para la salud. Hablo de la leche de vaca. Yo tomo todos los días casi un litro de leche UHT. Pero no sé si estoy poniendo en peligro mi salud. Cuando hablo de leche también hablo de lácteos. Qué opináis de ellos. Es justo el alarmismo que se extiende en torno a ellos?

  89. Nice weblog here! Also your site rather a lot up very fast! What host are you the use of? Can I get your affiliate hyperlink in your host? I want my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  90. dit :Je n’en connais aucun..! En revanche, j’utilise “Visionnaire” de Lancôme, puisque tu parles de texture de peau qui change, ben j’adhère Je participe aussi, ça doit sentir bon l’été !!Bonne journée !

  91. Hi I'm amazed about this getting shooed from taking photos infront of departmental stores / window displays. I got shooed when I snapped a picture inside of Barnes and Nobles bookstore in the Grove, LA.Weird. I'm only a harmless, camera touting tourist from KK :)*twinkle*

  93. Oii Tas,Estou apreensiva com essa sua falta repentina! Please, não saia por nós, seus fãs e seguidores! Espero que esse ” Sem Voz” seja alguma coisa relativa a garganta… Não consigo ver CQC sem você! Segunda que vem te espero então!! #TasFicaCQC

  94. Good artical. I’d be interested to know more about what you mean by “gratuitous act” regarding reality entertainment. I think of it (reality entertainment) as a kind of abomination, but it is difficult to say why without sounding like a mad person. The X-Factor-type shows are the worst for me. They are a kind of twisted pervertion.

  95. Merci, un billet qui hume la convivialité, c'est gai.J'ai beaucoup fréquenté la ligne Rouen-Paris…Les trajets "du boulot à la maison" quand ils sont quotidien sont souvent lourds à assumer…Heureusement qu'il y a du BON à déguster aussi, entre vous, entre nous.LôlÃ

  96. Hallo Linda,der Bodenbelag über dem Balkon-Estrich ist Sondereigentum. In meinen Augen kann hier jeder den Bodenbelag drauflegen den er für richtig hält. In der Tat wäre ein Anstrich das Balkon-Außenseite und auch die Erhöhung der Brüstung Sache der Gemeinschaft. Eine Erhöhung Bedarf höchstwahrscheinlich eine Allstimmigkeit, da es sich um eine bauliche Veränderung handelt (es müssen alle Eigentümer zustimmen).Viele GrüßeDennis Hundt

  97.  Dr.Liyi Karso(BHMS) March 20, 2011 respected dr.bhatia, while reading your letter to the students ,i felt as if i am reading my own doubts… and it pains to realise that we all as homoeopathic students,whereever we may be,suffer from same ignorance and confusions about our own homoeopathy. But i really found much encouragement and guidance through letter. thank u.:) i wish i could learn under you. …:)

  98. Hello there, I discovered your web site by way of Google whilst looking for a comparable topic, your web site got here up, it appears to be like good. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  100. De kan jo aldri slippe personen ut igjen..Jeg kan garantere dere at hvis han hadde fått gått fritt i gatene så hadde en eller annen helt gjort slutt på livet hans, han har tatt livet til over 92 mennesker.. tenke seg til at ett medmenneske kan gjøre noe så grusomt.

  101. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  102. Emailed topps about posters or prints…“Thank you for your inquiry. Due to licensing rights we will not be making the item you have described. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your support of Topps.”can you post it on flickr or something so i can use my crappy printer and print out a poster for my office? 🙂

  104. Thanks for your comments. I've heard people saying that what happens in the UK for World Book Day isn't sustainable, and when I read about how many books were sold in Barcelona on WBD I was shocked. Yes, it would be great to bring it here, so if anyone wants a long weekend in Barcelona, WBD is a Monday, I'm up for it…

  106. Issac,Entonces continue creendo que la NASA simplesmente “lost” los videos originales de la luna y que eso es una explicacion creible.Entonces continue creendo que no nos enganan, y no te preocupes con la morte de Kennedy, ni con el 9/11 (claro, se fueran los “teroristas”)No vees que nos enganan hace mucho tiempo? Y muchos aun piensan qui es algo con lo que no debrian se preocupar…. PERO ES LO MÁS IMPORTANTE!Puedes quedar ignorando los sinales, pero hay que acordar en algun tiempo.Desculpe el portunol y Saludos de Brasil

  107. aaron dpt skejap jer, apesal adi putra kena tunggu 6 tahun, padahal wife dia org malaysia, tp ape2 pun harap2 kerajaan x senang2 bg PR kt org luar….cos ramai weh bangla, sindon, duk tunggu PR jugak tu….bukan artis jer…Well-loved.

  108. that need up-date getting fitted frequently to keep up the actual computer software bundle running effortlessly.0, because of its grumpy MEMORY (and in some cases next time i place individuals not one but two excess 512MB twigs associated with RAM back in, the phone number doesn?t budge).As long you will not can start pertaining to severe or maybe gory Bebo layouts, they are often assured its internet page will glimpse exclusive plus stunning.

  109. I agree with the others here. With your staff writing jobs and VA work, you will be a tough one to compete with. Most of my income is dependent on income from my blogs, so I am likely to have a bad month (although I hope it doesn’t happen). Even if you have a bad month, you are still at $1500. That’s a great foundation.

  110. Bt:”Granny – That lead-in to Sweet Georgia Brown is so off the hook…It’s on another planet!Sweeeeet!”I’m glad you liked it. I can tell you really are a jazz fan. Granny liked the ones she listened to also. I believe there are more Web Sites with downloads of his songs and I think they might be whole song, not sure. Try google…

  111. Thank you for reading my poetry. I still like to write it, especially when I don’t have time for lengthy posts. Surprisingly, this one took a very long time to write. It really was from the heart.

  112. one old fart to another, I was thinking that exact thing a few days ago. Except it would be a shame to limit the fun to only a half dozen.Remember, behind most vast fortunes lies a felony or three waiting to be uncovered.

  113. Já bych ho teda taky vyhodil, ale ne kvůli tomu, že zrovna tohle nevÄ›dÄ›l (v tom musím v zásadÄ› souhlasit s tím, co napsal J. Petrov), ale proto, že nepÅ™iznal, že to neví a vymyslel si odpověď, kterou nebyl schopen obhájit. Já myslím, že každý, kdo jde do rizika, že místo otevÅ™eného pÅ™iznání své neznalosti to prostÄ› zkusí vyfabulovat, musí počítat s tím, že mu to pÅ™inese buď sladkou odmÄ›nu za odvahu a Å¡tÄ›stí, když to vyjde, nebo dostane lidovÄ› Å™ečeno pÅ™es držku, když to nevyjde…so einfach ist es:-))

  114. skriver:Vilken smart grej!

  115. Soto–Another Senator John Adler appointee. Corzine accurately dissed Adler as a political hack when he was mentioned as a possible AG candidate . It’s only a matter of time till a qualified candidate knocks him off . Heaven forbid ; he’ll have to get real job .

  116. Thanks for sharing superb informations. Your website is so cool. I am impressed by the details that you have on this website. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this web page, will come back for more articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched all over the place and just could not come across. What a perfect web-site.

  117. Arnaw215 mars 2011En général, j’aime bien ce que tu écris mais là, je pense que tu es complètement à côté… Je viens de lire les commentaires qui en sont la preuve. Tes sentiments de panique à l’égard des SDF sont normaux mais la solution que tu propose n’en est pas une, c’est juste du fascisme, peur de l’autre, etc.Bref… Manqué sur ce coup là…

  118. I followed the thread in Expats about this post, without a lot of interest, I must confess.Now that I finally read the post, I think you did well in mentioning this not so little hiccup. It was a fair review. This shows why professional reviewers have to go more than once to the same place before penning their critique. Anyway, the attitude of the staff was very, very professional and it shows that such things don’t happen too often.

  119. Alan,Not every church locks down its confession of faith to exclude differences over these questions. Indeed, I only know of Calvinistic churches doing this. If Bro. Rogers changed his view between two points that were BOTH within the congregation’s statement of faith, then why would the church face a crisis as to whether to retain him?

  121. Brian [71];Wells Fargo CEO: ‘I’m bullish on housing’I remember someone asked Buffet (I think?) something like “Donald Trump thinks its a great time to but real estate;” to which he answered “Donald Trump has a lot of real estate to sell…”I wonder what Wells’ REO and seriously delinquent book looks like these days?

  122. Hi Margaret,Congrats on the job! That is a great story- things like this definitely happen to bright, hardworking, open-minded job-seekers like yourself. This could lead you in a whole new direction, with a career path you may have never considered. The bonus is the fact that you can still keep exploring your options, and go back to school if you decide that’s what will make you happiest. Thanks for your response, and the suggestion for everyone!

  123. From the other comments which can be on this web page it’s clear that there are numerous various opinions on this topic, but I such as the way you view the scenario. I personally didn’t check out it like that, so I recognize you bringing this out. Appreciation for this, it was an exceptionally very good piece of writing. I search forward to your future content articles.

  125. Hi John,it was great meeting you Saturday and chatting as we did. Good to have you present, *and* hear that you learned things too. That’s the whole point of a PodCamp–well, that and creating community. Many communities were formed there on Saturday that may not have otherwise. That makes me very proud :)Looking forward to meeting up again.

  126. Thanks for putting into words, what I have discovered in my many visits to Kusadasi. The best time to visit is outside of the main tourist season. My wife and I have only once visited Turkey in high summer, and this was no less than 14 years ago. We never repeated the exercise, Keep up the information service.
