Abstract:  The Parthenon Frieze was a continuous band, 160 meters in length, with figures in relief that circumscribed the upper part of the main temple, within the outer colonnade. Its subject was the procession that took place as the culmination of the Great Panathenaia, on the 28th of the month Hekatombaion (around the 15th of August), the birthday of the goddess Athena. Depicted on the Frieze are some 360 figures of humans and divinities and more than 250 animals, mostly horses. In the booklet, the pupils, with a little boy as guide, participate in the Panathenaia, identify the participants in the procession on the Parthenon Frieze, the horsemen, the charioteers, the apobates, the thallophoroi or branch-bearers, the water-jar bearers, the archons or officials and the gods and goddesses of Mt. Olympus.
