“Phidias constructed the building” stated Joshua. Joshua stated “Pericles spared no expense in construction of the acropolis and, especially the Parthenon hiring skilled architects. “The first stone was laid on July 28, 447 BCE” stated Joshua. He also stated “the acropolis was built to honor the goddess Athena and proclaim the glory of the city to the world.” Also Joshua stated the acropolis begin construction under the guidance of the statesmen Pericles.”
He rebuilt the Athenian Agora and constructed the Parthenon, winning the hearts of the Athenians. Sparta felt threatened by Athens because of how much they'd grown under Pericles' rule and they began to demand concessions from the Athenians. Pericles refused and in 431 B.C., the
Around 19th century some parts of the Parthenon were occupied by the British people. However, some parts of the sculpture have been carried away and preserved in the British government. Then Hitchens indicates that although Greek was able to protect the Parthenon in the past because they allowed itself to become very dirty and polluted in the 20th century and as a result, Parthenon was nastily eroded by acid rain. However, the author wants Parthenon should be returned its origin. According to the “The Lovely Stones,” Hitchens says, “but gradually and now impressively, the Greeks have been living up to their responsibilities”.
The finest Greek architecture was the Parthenon that was built as a tribute to Athena. Most often, Greek art depicts Greek myths. The early Greek art was statues called kouros. Kouros showed a natural human position. Other sculptures displayed human action,mainly athletics.
As member of the Assembly and also of the Athenian navy, I would like to point out all of the cons that this reform will bring to us if passed. Athens has been a republic with ambition, that ambition did get us to the top, but now, in current time that same ambition has brought us down to our knees. We have exceeded on our ambition to power, therefore we have to learn form our own mistakes and as an assembly, make the decision whether or not to rebuilt these longs walls. If the Spartans destroyed our walls once how can we assure that this wont happen again? By making the walls bigger? We should rationalize the facts here; building bigger walls will just consume much of income, income that Athens needs to invest in other things that matter
Citizenship : Why Athens was the Better System Athens was a small city compared to Rome that honored and protected citizenship. There was a constant importance of acknowledging all citizens hard work and participation. Athenians made it clear that the poor helped build the city 's power and not just the wealthy. They took politics very seriously and made sure that everyone had a voiced opinion. Hard work and equality is what makes a nation outstanding.
Athenian democracy only lasted around two centuries, and the system was introduced in 507 B.C by an Athenian named Cleisthenes. The democratic political system of Athens was often referred to as the "demos", which translates to "the people". This meant that it was governed by the rule of the people of Athens. The three most important parts of the system included the ekklesia (the Assembly), the council of 500 men that represented the ten Athenian tribes (The Boule) and lastly, the popular courts (The Dikasteria) that were filled by citizens and jurors. Although Athens was democratic, this did not mean that there was equality. Only a small fraction of the population had citizenship, and around 40,000 males participated in the politics. This
The search for a contemporary and unique re-lighting of the Nashville Parthenon created for our studio a special opportunity to compare and contrast the Greek Parthenon’s formal, structural, decorative properties and the role it played in the festive, civic and pedagogical cultural life of ancient Athens with that of the role that Nashville’s Parthenon plays in the history and contemporary cultural life of Nashville. There are great similarities and great differences. Both buildings share a great affection of the local populace. It is remarkable the effort undertaken by the citizens, civic leaders and the business communities of both cities to build, maintain and reconstruct their individual structures. Both structures were—and are—in dialogue
Yes, Athens was justified in using league money to rebuild Athens. The reason for this is because the treasury was moved to Athens for protection, and whether a political move in favor of Athens or an idea to protect the money and league from Persians, the treasury remained in need for protection, which the league was supposed to provide. The league was originally an alliance for those members to have the security of having someone else assist them should it be needed, which includes rebuilding walls or city structures. The use of the league’s money to rebuild Athens, a member as well as the seat of the league, is something that should have been expected, considering that is for what the money was collected.
After the events of a very long and painful war most of the Roman population had suffered greatly. So as a gift emperor Vespasian started the construction of the Roman colosseum in 70 A.D to 72 A.D. Though sadly the eventual completion would not be seen by Vespasian because he died during the construction. All of the labor getting the stone and the construction were all done by the hands of slaves. The colosseum was eventually opened in 80 A.D by Vespasian 's son Titus. This was very appeasing to the citizens of Rome who were very excited about the opening.
Emperor Vespasian has made the decision to start to build the Roman colosseum. The building of the Roman Colosseum began today on 73 A.D. and in 79 A.D. the colosseum was finished and sadly the emperor Vespasian has passed away. Vespasian 's older son Titus saw the completion of building the Colosseum and the inauguration games in A.D. 81. Titus in 70 A.D sacked the city of Jerusalem and that 's how he paid for the colosseum. The design of the Roman Colosseum applied the latest in Roman arts, engineering, architecture and other creative endeavours.
The Colosseum, an iconic symbol of Rome and Roman warriors, was built as a gift to the Romans for entertainment and battles for all to enjoy. The Greeks also have a temple dedicated to the deities but it is dedicated to the Athenian deity and it was built long before the two previous buildings in Rome. These structures
