Hello After a long month of building, I've finally completed my latest MOC: A Classical Greek Polis A Classical Greek Polis by Simon Schweyer, on Flickr Description: In this build I tried to show the Greek culture in a small city. I don't claim that it is realistic or even 100% historical correct - I rather tried to put in there as much elements that are typical for (ancient) Greece. Yeah, it's very clichéd. So I included (from the right to the left): - An oracle (θόλος), inspired by the one in Delphi - A herder with some goats. Not something special Greek, but in very many tragedies (for example: Oedipus) and myths (for example Pan, God of the sheperds) they play an important role. - A trireme, which is a typically Greek war galley - A vineyard: Who doesn't love Greek wine? - The house with the tan dome: Inspired more by Santorini (also known as RedBull's Free Running City) than by anything ancient. But still fits in here. - Behind it is the Agera (Ἀγορά) with a statue on it: It was a free space used mainly for public meetings (best view in the third picture) - Behind it, a Greek theater. In the classical Greek Era, they didn't have any backdrops yet. Of course this theater is way too small, in comparison to the other buildings and the minifigs, but who cares? - Last but not least (actually in the center of the build): A Greek temple (νaός), built in an ionic order, like the Artemision in Ephesos You can view more pictures of it in this Flickr Album: Ancient Greece Thanks for looking and have a nice evening! - Simon Schweyer
