As with many other monuments and sanctuaries around Greece, historical facts about the Temple of Poseidon in Sounion are intertwined with bits of legend.
It is believed that King Aegeus was waiting for his sons Theseus to return from his expedition in Crete to kill the mighty Minotaur, a creature with the head of a bull and the body of a man.
He saw the black sails on the ship and mistakenly thought Theseus had been killed by the beast when in fact, young Theseus was victorious but had forgotten to replace the black sails with white ones, which ultimately led to his father’s death.
And so, in commemoration, Aegeus’ name was given to the Aegean Sea.
We will continue our motorcycle tour by visiting the Marathon Tomb.
At the plain of Marathon, near the location of the historical battle between the Athenians and the Persians, is the Tomb where the cremated remains of the 192 soldiers who lost their lives during the Battle of Marathon.
Apart from the ashes they also found traces from the funerary dinner that their fellow soldiers organized in their honor.
The Tomb of Marathon is the starting point for the annual Classical Marathon race.
After a short lunch, we will get on our motorcycles for the final part of our moto tour.
We will visit the historic Panathenaic Stadium where the first Olympic Games in 1896 took place and finally stop at the world-famous Acropolis.
The Acropolis of Athens, an ancient citadel, located on a rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike.
