Athens : The Acropolis. All You Need to Know About the Gods, Myths and Legends of This Sacred Site Paperback / softback

Part of the "Put it in Your Pocket" Series of Booklets series

Description

Jill Dudley writes about the earliest myths regarding the Acropolis, the strange birth of the goddess Athena, and the contest between her and Poseidon, god of the sea, for the patronage of the city. She explains the reason for the Panathenaia festival, and describes the importance of the goddess' image (said to have fallen from heaven) on which the defence of the city was thought to depend. It is as it says on the back cover of the booklet: All you need to know about the sacred site, its myths, legends and its gods.
