Architecture

Greek architecture is known for its columns. There are three types of columns: Doric, Ironic, and Corinthian. Other types of Greek art include pottery, sculpting, and paintings. Every city has a temple that is dedicated to a specific god. They were there to worship and make sacrifices to. Some leaders like Periecibles and Alexander the Great spread the Greek architecture throughout Europe. We see Greek influences in architecture today such as the White House, Capital Building, Supreme Court, and the Lincoln Memorial.

Greek mythology originated from story-telling, because there were no books like the Bible or the Quran in ancient Greece. As time went on, poets and authors wrote down the stories. Greeks believed in many gods who lived on Mount Olympus. Each god was believed to be ruler over something specific. Heroes were also a major part of mythology. Hercules is probably the most well known of the heroes. Many modern paintings, novels, and films still use Greek Mythology.
