2 ACROPOLIS

The Athenian Acropolis History
Acropolis history is difficult to pin down in its early years, as it disappears into myth and legend. Originally an acropolis was an easily defensible position and was usually the home of the local king or ruler. Although not as important as the centres of Mycenae and Tiryns during the 2C BC, Athens became more important as they lost their influence.
The word 'acropolis' means 'high city' or 'upper part of the city'. Many ancient Greek cities had them, so there is an acropolis at Lindos in Rhodes, for example. But the term has become almost exclusively associated with Athens, so when people say 'the acropolis', you can be sure they are referring to the one at Athens.
