by Aaron7

This is a temple dedicated to the goddess of victory, Nike. Yes Nike stands for more than simply shoes! It is small and thus is easy to overlook during your visit to the Akropolis. Unlike the Parthenon which is done in Doric style, this temple is done in an Ionic style. It also features a small altar used in ancient times to sacrifice animals.

Hours: daily 8:30 am-6:30 pm

Directions: This temple is to the south side of the entrance to the Akropolis
