The Parthenon: A new research cancels the name of the temple

Return |

A new research of the University of Utrecht gives new information about the Parthenon. According to this research the name “Parthenon” originates from another building. The new conclusions arise from the new finding of the archeologist Mr. Janric van Rookhuijzen. At first the name of the Parthenon seems to was “Hekatompedon” which means ‘’The temple with 100 feet”. This name appears in findings which are about 2500 years old and it as it seems it was the room where the 11 meter of Athena statue was kept.

The room of the Parthenon was a part of the Erechtheion temple. It was a place for the worship of Athena. No one paid attention to the little room which was the real Parthenon. As Ms. Josine Blok (professor of the University of Utrecht) ‘’ This research proves that we don’t have to trust the old expression: “What everybody knows is always the truth””.
