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
