Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

Theseus' brazen act sparked an Amazonomachy, a great battle between the Athenians and Amazons. Most of the great heroes in ancient Greece fought in an Amazonomachy, and Theseus could not be left out. The Amazons made camp in Attica on a hill that has been described as "bare and rocky", the Areios Pagos 1. It would become the most famous court of law of ancient times. The apostle Paul gave one of his best known speeches on the Areios Pagos.
