"The famous Akropolis. A testament to humankind's skill and craftmanship."

Akropolis Sanctuary

The Akropolis Sanctuary, also called the Akropolis of Athens,[1] was a massive acropolis and citadel in central Athens, Greece. Notable landmarks atop it built out of Naxian marble[2] include the Parthenon, the Statue of Athena, and the Erechtheion. It was also the end point of the Sacred Way that connected the acropolis to the Sanctuary of Eleusis.

History

During the Peloponnesian War, the acropolis was visited by the Spartan misthios Kassandra.[3]

During the 1500s, the Assassin Mentor Ezio Auditore da Firenze sent a group of Ottoman Assassins to recover Isu technology that had been discovered beneath the Akropolis.[4]

    • Erechtheion built in 421-407 BCE
    • Stoa extension to the Chalkotheke with 18 Doric columns (11 in game) built in 375 BCE
    • Extension to the Brauroneion built in 346 BCE
