Acropolis of Athens during the Mycenaean period 1500-1300 BCE. The Mycenaean palace wall also known as Pelasgiko (or Pelargiko) is currently visible near the Propylaea. The wall constituted the main means of defense until the end of the archaic period. The citadel had two entrances at the north and west. The west where today stands the Propylaea, had nine gates, the so called "enneapylon" which as reported by Thucydides, existed until the entrance of the Persians in Athens in 480 BCE.

The Athenian Acropolis: Built in the second half of the fifth century BCE, a limestone-and-schist formation that rose 300 feet above the lower town. In 1200 BCE, a Mycenaean palace stood there.
