Temple  of Athena Nike

Athens’ Acropolis, Greece

420 BCE

Stylobate: 8.27 m x 5.64 m; height: ca. 4 m.

The Temple of Athena Nike was named after the Greek goddess, Athena Nike. The temple is the earliest fully Ionic temple on the Acropolis. It was a prominent position on a steep bastion at the south west corner of the Acropolis to the right of the entrance, the Propylaea. In contrast to the Acropolis proper, a walled sanctuary entered through the Propylaea, the Victory Sanctuary was open, entered from the Propylaea’s southwest wing and from a narrow stair on the north. The sheer walls of its bastion were protected on the north, west, and south by the Nike Parapet, named for its frieze of Nikai celebrating victory and sacrificing to their patroness, Athena Nike.

Nike means victory in Greek, and Athena was worshipped in this form, as goddess of victory in war and wisdom. The citizens worshipped the goddess in hope of a successful outcome in the long Peloponnesian War fought on land and sea against the Spartans and their allies.

luckylucygoosey  asked:

Do you think you could beat athena in a fight?

I KICKED HER ASS IN THE SANCTUARY DEBATE CLUB, I CAN TELL YOU THAT MUCH.

IT WAS THIS CLUB MODERATED BY MAD MOXXI AND JUDGED BY TINY TINA. THE FIRST QUESTION WAS SOME SH*T LIKE “NOW THAT PANDORA STANDS ON THE PRECIPICE OF AN NEW RENAISSANCE OF RELATIVE PEACE, WHAT ECONOMIC STRUCTURE, IF ANY, DO YOU FEEL WOULD BE BEST TO REESTABLISH THE PLANET AS A LEGITIMATE CIVILIZATION?”

OBVIOUSLY I GAVE THE ONLY CORRECT ANSWER: JUMPING ON TOP OF MY PODIUM AND SHOWING OFF MY GLORIOUS PECS!! TINA STARTED SCREAMING HER ASS OFF AND GAVE ME THIRTY-TWELVE “NOW THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT"S.

ATHENA DIDN’T HAVE A G*DDAMN THING TO SAY IN RESPONSE AND JUST LEFT.

SO YEAH, I’M BASICALLY A THOMAS HENRY HUXLEY THAT CAN AND HAS BENCH PRESSED SEVERAL BEARS.

FLAWLESS MOTHERF*CKING VICTORY!!!
