 Acropolis, Athens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is known with some certainty that a sizeable temple sacred to Athena Polias (Protectress of the City) was erected by mid-6th century BC, a Doric limestone building from which many relics survive and is referred to as the "Bluebeard" temple (from the pedimental three-bodied man-serpent sculpture, whose beards were painted dark blue).
These colonnades were almost finished in the year 432 BC and had two wings, the northern one serving as picture gallery.
The archaic xoanon of the goddess and a statue made by Praxiteles in the 4th century BC were both in the sanctuary.

BC are found chiefly in Sicily and at Paestum in Italy.
After 500 BC the archaic features of the Doric disappeared; harmonious proportions were achieved; and the final exquisitely adjusted type took form at Athens, in the Hephaesteum (465 BC), the Parthenon (c.447-432 BC), and the Propylaea (437-432 BC).
The chief examples, both at Athens, are the choragic monument of Lysicrates (c.335 BC) and the Tower of the Winds (100 BC-35 BC).

In the front view the drapery clings damply to the flesh and has the effect of nudity; over the figure's right thigh a series of curving ridges ("modelling lines") stress the roundness of the limb so that it looks still rounder than the naked left thigh.
The original, made about 440 BC, was of bronze and the most famous work of Polykleitos.
The composition is still four-square, designed principally for front and side views, but the proportions and the pose have been planned thoughtfully, so that none of the major axes of the figure are strictly vertical or horizontal.

 THE GOLDEN AGE OF PERICLES
His first objectives were to rebuild the temple complex of the Acropolis which had been destroyed by the Persians, and to link Athens to its lifeline, the port of Piraeus, with fortified walls designed to withstand any future siege.
Under Pericles’ leadership (461-429 BC), Athens experienced a golden age with unprecedented cultural, artistic and scientific achievements, which had germinated in the Ionian cities in Asia Minor almost two centuries earlier.
The major monuments, in the order in which they were built, are the temple of Athena Parthenos (the Parthenon), 447-432 BC; the Propylaea (gateway), 437-432 BC; the temple of Athena Nike, 427-424 BC; and the temple of Erechtheus (the Erechtheum), 421-405 BC.

Begun in 447 BC, it was structurally complete by 438 BC when it was dedicated at the Panathenaic festival: by 432 BC its pedimental sculptures were also in place.
The metopes, sculpted in high relief, were created between circa 447-442 BC, the frieze in lower relief was sculpted circa 442-438 BC, while the free-standing figures of the pediments can be dated 438-432 BC.
Though the pediments of the Parthenon are badly damaged, particularly so the west, we do know the subjects depicted: on the west side the fight between Athena and Poseidon for sovereignty over the land of Attica, and on the east side the birth of Athena.

 Empedocles [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
From more reliable sources it seems that he was born at Acragas in Sicily around 492 BC and died at the age of sixty.
He was the son of a certain Meton, and was from an important and wealthy local aristocratic family: his grandfather, also called Empedocles, is reported to have been victorious in horse-racing at the Olympic Games in 496 BC.
This appears to fit in with the known history of Acragas where after the death of the popular and enlightened tyrant Theron in 473 BC his son Thrasydaeus proved to be a violent despot.

The pediments on the Parthenon were built between 438-432 BC and were the last part of the sculptures on the Parthenon to be completed.
They could be carved at leisure because they were lifted up in to place, and the roofing of the temple did not depend on them being in position in the first place.
It was at the same time that serious work began on the pediments, so although Phidias may have designed the pediments, their implementation must have been mostly done without him.
