| p.1 #3 · The Acropolis----In Athens |
Another brilliant shot, Charlie! Your comment surprises me though, I thought "polis" in Greek stood for "city". But I am no student of Greek except incidentally.
Thanks, Philber. Glad you like the shot.
Philber is right in that the word "polis" means city.
The first part of the word means edge, and possibly fortress-like.
My loose use of the word was intended to convey the idea that Acropolis meant the rocky location of the buildings.
And to avoid the common (mis)interpretation that it referred to the Parthenon- which is the archeological treasure that sits atop the rocky hill.
