Photo taken in spring 2008 near the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens (in Greek - Naos tou Olimpiou Dios), Olympieion, that was dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian Gods. Construction began in the 6th century BC during the rule of the Athenian tyrants, who envisaged building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD some 650 years after the project had begun.
