Golden Age

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

"The silver of Lavreotiki and 300 types of other minerals, each with endless varieties, created great power for the Athenians. The exploitation of the subsoil lasted for about 25 centuries, but the constant human intervention undermined the region. The temple of Poseidon was built - repaired during the Golden Age of Pericles."
Comment by eva-emma

"Το ασήμι της Λαυρεωτικής κι άλλα 300 είδη μεταλλευμάτων με ατέλειωτες ποικιλίες το κάθε ένα, ήταν μια μεγάλη δύναμη για τους Αθηναίους. Η εκμετάλλευση του υπεδάφους, κράτησε για 25 αιώνες περίπου αλλά οι συνεχείς ανθρώπινες επεμβάσεις υποβάθμισαν την περιοχή. Ο ναός του Ποσειδώνα, ανεγέρθηκε-επιδιορθώθηκε τον χρυσό αιώνα του Περικλή"
