Athena Promachos

The Athena Promachos was a colossal bronze statue of Athena sculpted by Pheidias, which stood between the Propylaea and the Parthenon on the Acropolis of Athens. This statue is located outside the building of the Academy of Athens. The Academy of Athens has the legal status of a Legal Entity of Public Law and is supervised by the Ministry of National Education and Religion.
Its operation is governed by its Founding Charter 4398/1929, which ratified the Constitutional Decree of March 18th 1926 concerning the Regulations of the Academy of Athens.
