Athens-TempleofThemis

The Temple of Themis

The Temple of Themis was a small shrine dedicated to the Titan Themis, located on the southern slopes of Athens' acropolis, beside the Monument of Hippolytos.

During the Peloponnesian War, the shrine and the monument were visited by the Spartan misthios Kassandra.[1]

Trivia

  • The temple houses a painted statue recognized as the goddess Hera, instead of a statue usually associated with Themis: a woman holding the scales of justice and often also a sword.
  • The location is based on the ruins of what has been deemed to be a shrine to Themis.
