Climbing to the Acropolis from the Propylaea, you encounter the elegant Ionic temple of Athena Nike, which was constructed by the architect Callicrates in 425-421 BC. It was related to the worship of Athena as a helper of the Athenians during wars. The relief frieze depicts the gods of Olympus on the eastern side and various battles on the other three sides.
