The Parthenon is more than just a building

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.
