The Temple of Athena Nike is part of the Athenian Acropolis complex. The present ionic temple, designed by the architect Kallikrates, was constructed between 449 and 420 BCE and built over the remains of an earlier structure destroyed during the Persian invasion. While the pedimental sculpture is poorly preserved, a significant portion of the frieze survives, including a depiction of the battle of Marathon on the south side. The temple's akroteria were gilded with material from the Athenian treasury, shown by treasury records from 382 BCE to 350 BCE. The temple was demolished in 1686 by the Turks, and rebuilt in 1834 after Greece gained independence. It was dismantled for maintenance and restoration in 1998, a process completed in 2010.
