Greek police storm the Acropolis

It was originally designed as a fortress - though that didn't keep Xerxes and Artemisia I of Halicarnassus out - so it's interesting to see it still being used in that way. There's an old quote about the beseiged having eaten everything but Pheidias' horses - though luckily it didn't come to that this time!
