The Polis of Athens

City Map of Athens

A useful resource for learning about the features of the Athenian polis is PBS’s “The Greeks Interactive” website. There is a map of Athens where you can see the city’s layout,  zoom in to places like the Acropolis, the Phyx, and the Theatre of Dionysus, and read an informative blurb about each of these features. It also has a section on daily life in Athens as well as the Greek alphabet.

Key terms to know:

  • Agora
  • Theatre of Dionysus
  • Acropolis
  • Pnyx
  • Parthenon
  • Areopagos
  • Athletic stadium
  • Council of Elders
  • Piraeus
