The research conducted for this poster is dedicated to the Parthenon, why it was built, and how it comes to resemble Athenian power in Ancient Greece, the Delian League, and the modern world. Being one of the most iconic structures and temples constructed in all of history, why is the Parthenon so significant when it comes to upholding the institutions of Ancient Athens? The research involves scholarly articles and secondary sources and compares the intricate artwork included on the Parthenon with its overall size, then factors in the speed and quality it was built. Having withstood wars and earthquakes, this poster seeks to understand why the Parthenon is a significant symbol of Athenian institutions even 2,500 years later.
