Scholars argue whether or not the funds for this project came from the spoils of the war, or the Athenian government. In several ancient texts the name Pheidias appears and seems to always be followed by a positive statement about his sculpture.

R.G. Haggar contends that “the Parthenon statues remain the greatest monument to his genius” (Haggar 22), but does not believe he sculpted the majority of the images himself.

The Battle of Marathon took place in Athens in 490 BCE, and the citizens fought against the invading Persian army.

The history of Egypt started around 3000 BCE when the first pharaoh, Menes, united the Upper and Lower Egypt. The Egyptian believed strongly in the life after dead, a fact that influenced their culture and architecture. The greatest kings and pharaohs of the Middle and New Kingdoms were buried in The Valley of the Kings which is located on the cliffs at Deir el-Bahari in western Thebes (modern-day Luxor).
