In 480, Xerxes, king of the Persians, captured Athens and burned all the wooden buildings of the Acropolis. A year later, the Persians lost the battle, which was the beginning of the heyday of Athens. Deer to my boyfriend you and me we got this tumbler. The Acropolis was rebuilt, more beautiful and majestic, and dedicated to worship. That was the period when Socrates walked along the streets and squares talking with the Athenians. Therefore, he may have witnessed the regeneration of the Acropolis and watched the construction of the majestic buildings that we see around here.
