ATHENS
[ Also see Cities Europe Greece ]

Ancient of days! august Athena! where,
  Where are thy men of might? thy grand in soul?
    Gone--glimmering through the dream of things that were;
      First in the race that led to glory's goal,
        They won, and pass'd away--Is this the whole?
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto II, st. 2)

Athens, the eye of Greece, mother of arts
  And eloquence.
      - John Milton, Paradise Regained
         (bk. IV, l. 240)
