The Parthenon is more than just a building, as It has a long history and is important to the
Greek culture. It is a temple dedicated to Ahena Pathenos, patron goddess of Athens. It has been
destroyed many times, especially during the Persian invasion of Athens. In 447 b.c.e, the
Athenians decided to do a massive rebuilding project, that was done by razing the damaged
building and constructing of it,under statesman Pericles. He used funds from the Delian League
Which was an organization of Greek city-states formed for defense against future invasions. The
Defeat of Athens ended when other Greek city-states accused Athens of imperialism and began
the Peloppenesian War.
