510 BC

According to Vitruvius (VII, præf. 75) the architects Antistates, Kallæschros, Antimachides, and Porinos laid the foundation of the temple of Olympian Zeus at Athens during the reign of Peisistratos. According to Aristotle (Polit. 80 V, 11) the work was interrupted by the banishment of Hippias the son of Peisistratos in 510 B.C. (For the continuation of this building see Cossutius.)
