Colosseum Rome - Pictures in 360 degrees Panorama Photo
From Wikipedia: The Colosseum, or the Coliseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium, Italian Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo), is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering. Occupying a site just east of the Roman Forum, its construction started in 72 AD[1] under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus,[2] with further modifications being made during Domitian's reign (81–96).[3] The name "Amphitheatrum Flavium" derives from both Vespasian's and Titus's family name (Flavius, from the gens Flavia). Capable of seating 50,000 spectators,[4][5] the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology.

360 Degrees Virtual Tours of the world NOVA Online/Pyramids/The Dig An excerpted interview with Mark Lehner NOVA: Tell us about your current excavation at Giza. Does it stem from a desire to define who built the pyramids and how they were built? LEHNER: I started asking new questions. Not who built the Sphinx, and how were the pyramids built, but where are all the people? NOVA: How did the geology of Giza give you evidence of a workforce that built the pyramids? LEHNER: Basically the quarries tend to be to the south of the pyramids. But if the quarries are to the south, the conduit for non-local materials was that valley or wadi, then the depression at the mouth of that wadi must have been the location of the harbor, which would have been substantial for unloading blocks of granite weighing 60 tons, for example. NOVA: How did you know exactly where to begin digging? NOVA: How do you know the bell-shaped pots were used for baking bread? NOVA: What do the bakeries tell you about ancient Egypt? LEHNER: In 1995, we went back and said, 'OK, wait a minute.

Selon un récit tardif de Plutarque, le général Miltiade aurait envoyé un messager annoncer la victoire aux habitants d'Athènes. Ce récit est une déformation du récit d'Hérodote (Histoires, VI, 105-106), lequel rapporte qu'un messager du nom de Philippidès aurait été envoyé à Sparte, avant la bataille, pour solliciter l'aide de la cité. Il est à l'origine de l'épreuve la plus prestigieuse des Jeux Olympiques modernes. Grande victoire des Athéniens à Salamine Le 22 septembre de l'an 480 av. Athènes perd la liberté à Chéronée
