Temple of Poseidon - Cape Sounion
So I have the feeling that a lot of you when hearing the word “ACME” instantly go back to your childhood memories and the Looney Toons! However, creating this page I would also like to take the opportunity to revisit words in the English language deriving from Ancient Greece. In ancient Greece the word was used to describe the highest point or even perfection (as in of an expression i.e an architectural expression; a temple). In fact in Greek mythology, there is even a nymph with the name. There is no doubt that the Temple of Poseidon grasps the meaning of acme in all of its magnificence!
