Pantheon is a word used by several cultures; it is the name of the building housing the tomb of famous people. Taken from the ancient Roman and Greek use of the word, a pantheon is a temple dedicated to all the gods. Pas/pan means “all” and theos means “god”. The iconic Pantheon in Rome is such a temple.
Parthenos is Greek and means virgin or maid and was the word used especially for the Greek Goddess Athena. (Par means first). The goddess Athena of Greek religion was a civic goddess, wise in the arts of war but also in the industries of peace. So… the Parthenon is the Greek temple dedicated to the Goddess Athena. The temple (Pantheon) is in Athens and was built in the 5th century B.C.
