A game in progress.

Parthenon: Rise of the Aegean is a historical board game that simulates commerce in the Aegean Sea around 600 B.C. 3–6 players begin with control of two villages and a fleet of ships on an island within the Aegean. Each player develops their island through trade, adding villages and structures. A game represents three years of time, and each year is divided into four seasons of ten phases. The winner is the first to complete all structures.

The game is published by Siren Bridge Publishing and Z-Man Games, Inc. It was designed by Andrew Parks and Jason Hawkins. Parthenon: Rise of the Aegean won "Board Game of the Year" during the 32nd annual Origins Award. Components include a game board, 6 reference cards, 18 counters and 440 cards.
