I have put online several photos of Syracuse, as an addition to an earlier article on the history of the capital of ancient Sicily. You will find something about the Euryaleus fort and the monuments of the isle of Ortygia: the Temple of Athena (now the Cathedral), the Temple of Apollo (photo), the Arethusa Well, and one photo of the pavement of an ancient street. On the mainland: the Greek theater (where Aeschylus‘ Persians was staged for the first time), the Roman amphitheater, and the altar where Hiero II sacrificed no less than 450 bulls on one, bloody day. There’s also a page on the notorious quarries, where 7,000 Athenians were once held captive (more…). The section with ancient texts on Syracuse is now also finished.
