The Patron Goddess of Lindos

All city-states in the ancient Greek world featured strongholds on the summit of a steep hill close to the city center. This one right here is no exception, as it crowns the modern town which has been built over the ancient ruins of Lindos. The most prominent period in the history of the Lindos dates to the 6th century B.C. when the tyrant of the town, Cleobulus, restored the earlier temple of Athena Lindia. The cult of Athena was established on the acropolis sometime during the Mycenaean period. The mythological founder of the temple was Danaos, who -after having fled Egypt with his 50 daughters- arrived on Rhodes under the guidance of the Goddess Athena. Danaos was received with honor by the locals, and so he chose to found a temple on the acropolis dedicated to Athena. Thus, she became the patron Goddess of Lindos.
