Since I'm pasting the background image of the Acropolis behind the characters, they don't cast shadows on the ground. I had to do some manual touching up to paint their shadows on to the ground, remembering to keep it consistent with the direction of the light. I'm presuming they're being illuminated by a close to full moon.

2014-07-30 Rerun commentary: Knowing that the light is provided by a full moon and that the time is currently after 2 o'clock, the directions of the shadows allow us to calculate that they are standing more or less on the south-west side of the Parthenon (which can be seen behind them).

Fortunately there is a path there so you can access the Parthenon from that side. Therefore, this comic is completely historically accurate!
