If the Athenians with the Parthenon honored Athena, one of the two claimants of the naming of the city, in Sounio they dedicated the temple to the second claimant, Poseidon. There could not have been a better place than this.
A rock 60 meters high above the sea, in the southernmost point of the city, where those who leave Athens by boat pass for the last time, or the place where one first encounters when approaching Athens.
It is the same rock, where in a variation of the myth, Aegeas was standing, waiting for his son Theseus to return from Crete, and, when he saw in the background the ship with black sails, he jumped into the sea, which has since taken the his name, Aegean.

Aloha Tasos,

     Nice video.  Quite a background story.  I suspect that the rock, as you say, is one of the original Pillars of Heracles, another being the island of Kea.  

     Take care and be safe!

Aloha and Drone On!

Aloha Tasos,

     Yes, you are right.  The Gibraltar Straights is the Roman Interpretation of that location.  What I wrote about the Pillars of Heracles is the original location in Greek lore.  It also reveals the location of the Island of Atlas.

     Take care and be safe!

Aloha and Drone On!
