TEMPLE OF POSEIDON
The travelers are journeying to the Temple of Poseidon in the town of Sounion.
This is the site where Aegeus fell into the sea because of a misunderstanding. His son Theseus had traveled to Crete to kill Minotaur because the Athens had to sacrifice seven boys and seven girls every year. On Theseus' return he was to hoist a white sail to tell his father he was safe but forgot. And when his father saw a black sail, he thought his son was dead so Aegeus threw himself into the sea.
That is why it is called the Aegean Sea.
The Athenians decided to build a temple dedicated to Poseidon, god of the sea. The temple give sea farers and warriors safe trips.
