Parthenon (Παρθενώνας)

No trip to Athens is complete without a visit to the The Parthenon (Parthenonas), one of the world's most famous buildings!

Scholars think the pnyx was able to hold about 6,000 citizens. This can be taken as a reasonable estimate of the number of politically active citizens (free males born in the city, perhaps 20% of the adult population). There were wooden seats for the members of the Council of 500, who were selected by lot for terms of a single year to run the city on a day-to-day basis, and prepare the agenda for the Assembly.
