Via the site http://www.parthenonfrieze.gr students can study the Parthenon frieze and the depicted Panathenaic festival, for instance, by identifying the depicted gods and goddesses on the four sides of the temple frieze.


  1. Explain what is expected of the students: for instance, name all the gods, or only indicate how some of the gods can be recognised.
  2. The students go to http://www.parthenonfrieze.gr and select the English version of the site.
  3. They choose “learn about the frieze” and complete the assignment
  4. Via “play with the Frieze” and then “Olympic riddles: identifying the gods and goddesses” they can afterwards test their knowledge about the god.
