Replaced Pano[edit]

I replaced the panorama taken from Lykkabetus hill with one from the exact same angle but less choppy. Looks much better.

Added a template[edit]

I created and added a Landmarks in Athens template.

Location of Athens[edit]

Take a look at the red point showing the loc. of Athens in Greece, correct it

Article of European Temp record re-entered[edit]

Why was this removed?Article re-entered,since its important to mention that WMO gives it officially to Athens.


Agrae redirects here. But what is "Agrae"? The article doesn't mention it at all, and Google isn't much help either. @Fordmadoxfraud: you created the redirect once upon a time. Can you explain? Lennart97 (talk) 13:22, 1 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Lennart97: Agrae was a district within ancient Attica, likely populated by or associated with the Agryle. Ford MF (talk) 18:54, 1 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Thanks, that explains it. Would Argyle be a better target for the redirect then, or maybe some other page? Lennart97 (talk) 18:57, 1 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
      • Agryle, perhaps, but not Argyle. Sadly these Atticans didn't leave a legacy of colourful socks for the world to remember them. P Aculeius (talk) 14:06, 5 July 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mythical origin[edit]

I think this article should have a section for Athens mythical origins. There is literally a [Youtube video] on its mythical origin and probably sources for it.CycoMa (talk) 03:09, 28 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Contemporary history[edit]

The history section ends with the 2004 Summer Olympics. Do we have a good source for Athens history after 2004? Especially after the Greek government-debt crisis? A455bcd9 (talk) 12:13, 1 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Metro Area has to be wrong.[edit]

There is no way the metro area of Athens is about 3000 km2. I measured the loosest possible area containing Athens and it's 1500 km2. About a quarter of it is the Saronic Gulf. I think this is a very sneaky vandalization attempt. We should look into correcting that. Atlas821 (talk) 13:34, 6 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
