The Agora and Hephaistos

Post 1

Researcher 237165

The Agora in Athens was devoted to selling products and services in ancient times. Two principle Greek gods were said to be it's patrons, Athena, the goddess of wisdom and crafts in this case, and Hephaistos, god of fire and the forge, and patron god of craftsmen and smiths. The Hephaisteon is on a small hill in the Agora, and is a temple much less imposing the the Parthenon which overlooks the entire Agora and a great deal of Athens, but the temple is thought to be devoted to Hephaistos, and was made over into a church by the Christians, and so has stayed in fine condition.
