Follow Phidias (Pheidias), the chief builder for the Parthenon, as he supervises the construction of the new temple and faces charges of embezzlement. The year is 432 BCE. As dawn breaks over Athens, Phidias is already late for work. He is the chief builder for the Parthenon — Athens’ newest and largest temple— and when he arrives onsite, city officials accuse him of embezzling gold from the temple’s sacred central statue. He has until sundown to prove his innocence or face the courts. Mark Robinson outlines a day in the life of a Greek architect.

Lesson by Mark Robinson, directed by Hana Tintor & Laura Martinović.
