«Is it all Greek to you? What does Acropolis mean?»
The name Acropolis, comes from the two Greek words, Acron (tip/highest point) and Polis (city), the highest tip of the city is Acropolis. It is the symbol of democracy and Greek civilization. Built in 429 B.C. by Pericles (a great statesman and general of Athens in the Golden Age) for the goddess Athena. Every four years, the Athenians had a festival called the Panathenaea that rivalled the Olympic Games in popularity. During the festival, a procession travelled through the city via the Panathenaic Way and ended at the Acropolis.
According to Greek mythology, Athens was named after the rivalry between the goddess of wisdom Athena & god of the sea Poseidon. During their rivalry on who would become patron of the city; it is said that Poseidon, hit a rock with his trident and offered a spring of sea water to the city. Athena, won the rivalry by touching a rock with her spear, on the holy grounds of the Acropolis and offering the olive tree. Athens has since been known as the city of wisdom, a spiritual and cultural center worldly known.
Athens’ name was born, when the power of the sea met wisdom
