Between the Acropolis and river Ilisos we encounter the temple of Olympian Zeus, one of the largest temples of the ancient world. Its construction started in the 6th century BC and was finally completed by the Roman emperor Hadrian, who inaugurated in 131-132 AD. At the temple there were two huge gold and ivory statues of Zeus and emperor Hadrian.
