The Temple of Olympian Zeus is a temple ruin in the center of Athens, Greece, dedicated to the thunderbolt-wielding king of the Olympic pantheon, Zeus. It once contained a gigantic statue of Zeus that was among the largest cult statues of the ancient world. The temple was pillaged after the fall of the Roman Empire, and the statue of Zeus was likely broken down for precious materials, although its precise fate was lost in the annals of time. Only a few of the huge columns remain of this once-mighty temple, but it is a precious remnant of cultural heritage and a breathtaking piece of history to behold. We can only hope whoever did the ransacking was struck by a mysterious bolt of lightning...

The Ágora Romana of Athens was built between 19 and 11 BC with contributions from Julius Caesar and Augustus. During Hadrian's reign, the courtyard was paved with flagstones and the full-sized columns would have been made of pure marble. After the invasion of Heruli in AD 267, the city of Athens was confined to the area within the last Roman city walls, and the city's administrative and commercial center was moved. During the Byzantine and Turkish occupation, the area was covered with houses, workshops and churches as well as the Fethiye Mosque.
