When I was in the Acropolis the first feeling is like Pompeii,
both have a long history and here even have more stories and legends.
The Dark Ages
There is no conclusive evidence for the existence of a Mycenean palace on top of the Athenian Acropolis.
However, if there was such a palace, it seems to have been transplanted by later building activity on the Acropolis.
Not much is known as to the architectural appearance of the Acropolis until the archaic era.
In the 7th and the 6th centuries BC the site was taken over by Kylon during the failed Kylonian revolt,
and twice by Pisistratus: all attempts directed at seizing political power by coups d' etat. Nevertheless it seems that
a nine-gate wall, the Enneapylon, had been built around the biggest water spring, the "Clepsydra", at the northwestern foot.
