## Overview
The Parthenon of Athens seen from the hill of the Pnyx to the west. Location 23°43'35.69"E 37°58'17.39"N Thsi century sees the beginning of a period of philosophical brilliance among advanced civilizations, particularly the Greeks which would continue all the way through the 4th century until the time of Alexander the Great. Ancient Greek philosophy develops during the 5th century BC, setting the foundation for Western ideology. In Athens and elsewhere in the Mediterranean world, the 5th century marks a high point in the development of political institutions, art, architecture, and literature. The century is also notable for the Persian Wars, fought between the Greek cities, and the vast Persian Empire. Determined to punish Athens for supporting a revolt by conquered Greek cities in Asia Minor, King Darius I sends a huge army to confront them, only to have his plans thwarted by a storm which destroys his fleet. His son Xerxes attempts to finish the job 10 years later, and succeeds in capturing Athens and burning it to the ground, only to be defeated in a land battle. The latter part of the century would see the Greeks locked into a bitter war among themselves, with the major cities Athens and Sparta competing for absolute domination. This series of conflicts, the Peloponnesian Wars finally culminated in a short lived Athenian Empire, Athens having finally subdued all her enemies. Image File history File links Ac. ...
