Attika, or the Attika peninsula, is a historical region and peninsula in Greece projecting into the Aegean Sea which encompasses the country's capital, Athens. As such, it is home to some of the most iconic Hellenic landmarks, and its dry summer climate is archetypal of the beautiful environment popularly associated with Greece.
During the Peloponnesian War Attika was a heavily-trafficked area with Athens as the largest city in Greece. With the conflict pitting Athens' Delian League against the city-state of Sparta, the peninsula was the central battleground of the war. The Spartan army set up multiple siege camps along the western approaches to Athens, as well as the Cemetery Road.
Prior to this conflict, the region's economy was based primarily off of the silver mining industry based in Lavrio. With the dawn of the Delian League, Attika's prosperity shifted to taxation as a principal source of income.
The Attika Peninsula was made up of fourteen regions and islands:
- Abandoned Farmlands
- Cape Sounion
- Greater Athens
- Heights of Thorikos
- Isle of Salamis
- Marathon Beach
- Parnes Mountains
- Phaleron Sandy Bay
- Port of Piraeus
- Sacred Plains of Demeter
- Scarred Mountain of Pentelikos
- Sieged Plains
- Silver Mountain
- In the official website of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, the regions of Attika, Boeotia, and Megaris are grouped under "Attika Peninsula" despite the latter two being geographically distinct and Attika being synonymous with the Attika Peninsula.
- The emblem of Attika is a stylized owl, referencing the Greek goddess Athena.
