  • [01] A rare view of the Parthenon from the south

    AMNA / A view of the south side of the Parthenon, atop the Acropolis in central Athens, illuminated by the pre-dusk winter sunlight on Thursday, 19 January 2012. Only the very top of the Parnitha mountain range, in the background, appears speckled with snow, something that is forecast to change over the coming weekend, with snowfall predicted to fall throughout the greater Athens area. This seldom used angle to photograph the Parthenon, viewing directly south to north, vividly chronicles the damage done to the monument during the 1687 siege of an Ottoman garrison by a Venician expeditionary force. A Venetian mortar struck a munitions store in the Parthenon, causing the greatest destruction to date in its 2,400-year history. AMNA / O. PANAGIOTOU
