  Amphipolis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
It remains an open question whether Ennea Hodoi is to be identified with the settlement on Hill 133, where the destruction level dates to the mid-5th century BC, or with Amphipolis itself, where in the vicinity of the north wall excavation has uncovered an establishment prior to the 5th century BC wall.
The foundation of Amphipolis finally in 438/ 437 BC, in the time of Pericles, by the general Hagnon was a great success for the Athenians, whose chief purpose was to ensure control of the rich Strymon hinterland and the Pangaion mines.
Their success, however, was again short- lived, because at the end of the first decade of the Peloponnesian War (442 BC) Amphipolis broke away from its mother city, Athens, and remained independent until its incorporation into the kingdom of Macedonia by Philip II (357 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.

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 Persian invasion of Athens in 480 BC left the buildings of the Akropolis in ruins.
Subsequently, the Oath of Plataia (479 BC) determined that the destroyed temples should be left in their ruinous state as a monument to the Persian sacrilege: only the opisthodomos of the Old Temple of Athena Polias was repaired in order to house the ancient wooden cult statue of Athena.
The Parthenon, or Temple of Athena Parthenos, was built between 447-438 BC, when it was dedicated at the Panathenaic festival.

In 354 BC, Rome and Samnium formed an alliance against the Gallic threat from the north.
By 343 BC, however, continued Samnite expansion into Campania prompted the Greek City-States in the south to ask Rome to rein in their ally.
Finally, Roman victories at Vadimonian Lake (310 BC) and Bovianum Vetus (304 BC) brought the war to a simmering end, even as Rome was heavily engaged in the north, defeating the Etruscans (310 BC) and suppressing revolts by the Umbrians and Hernici (307 BC).

 Pindar --  Britannica Student Encyclopedia
The type of poetry called lyric got its name from the fact that it was originally sung by individuals or a chorus accompanied by the instrument called the lyre.
The first of the lyric poets was probably Archilochus of Paros, who may have written as early as 700 BC.
The Greek lyric poet Corinna of Tanagra, Boeotia, is traditionally considered a contemporary and rival of the lyric poet Pindar (who died in about 438 BC) and is believed to have been victorious over him in five poetic contests.
