Athens ( / ˈ æ θ ɪ n z / ; [2] Modern Greek : Αθήνα , Athína [aˈθina] , Ancient Greek : Ἀθῆναι , Athênai modern pronunciation Athínai ) is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens dominates the Attica region and is one of the world's oldest cities , with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years [3] and its earliest human presence starting somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennium BC. [4]

The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon , considered a key landmark of early Western civilization. The city also retains Roman and Byzantine monuments, as well as a smaller number of Ottoman monuments.

Different etymologies, now commonly rejected, were proposed during the 19th century. Christian Lobeck proposed as the root of the name the word ἄθος ( áthos ) or ἄνθος ( ánthos ) meaning "flower", to denote Athens as the "flowering city". Ludwig von Döderlein proposed the stem of the verb θάω , stem θη- ( tháō , thē- , "to suck") to denote Athens as having fertile soil. [24]

Omg I love fucking w My subs randomly Especially when they’re working being completely vanilla, then BAM! I come creepin in

I’m 29. But what are you “knowledgeable” about exactly? Far worse has come along than DT and if you say differently, you’re completely deranged. As a man of advanced age, you’d think you’d know just how evil man can be and if you think DT is the worst of the worst, you’re a liar.

Dude I completely agree, no respect. So disappointing

Yeah completely wrong, seems so unfair to him and his opponent

Cleary says other cities do consider financials. He says he"s completely opposed to 29, but the current building is ugly, so he"s in favour of 25 storeys.

I don"t think they"ll cancel the tour. Nor will they reschedule. Not when they have plans to work on LM5 after the break. Just hope they are completely rested during the 2.5 months break after the tour.

Scared to watch the Natalya Vs Charlotte Championship match. Would be so stupid if they put the belt on Charlotte now but wouldn"t completely surprise me

Pilates is a type of workout, it"s like ballet mixed with yoga. It is completely core focused. You should talk to your doctor about it!! Did you also have the Harrington rod surgery?

Leto"s Joker is boring and lame. All that method acting and being a douchenozzle to his fellow cast members resulted in a 10 minute appearance in a movie where he could be edited out completely and it wouldn"t change a damn thing.

Those Game Awards completely overlook two of the best games this year: Factorio ( 98% positive ) and Shadow Tactics ( 96% positive ). They’re not even nominees. Smh.
