I'm on the hunt for a game that is focused around building ancient architecture or art. There is Cleopatra and the Society of Architects but I've found for my purposes, playing in a school setting, that it's a little too elaborate of a setup and takedown to work well.

In general I'm looking for something:

Plays relatively fast (60 minutes or less).
Quick setup and breakdown.
Light to medium-light mechanical weight. Quick rules explanation a must!

I want to use this game as a supplemental to lessons I'll be doing on ancient cultures. There is going to be a focus on Egyptian and Greek architecture, sculpture and art so I'd like to find a lightish game that can echo the lessons when we have homeroom activity time during school days.

I already have 7 Wonders and Roll Through the Ages meeple

I would say Thebes the treasure tiles are all different historical items and the game includes a sheet with a short description and time period for each item.

I was thinking Pergamon might work, but I am not sure if the art theme would be strong enough for what you are looking for.
