You can distinguish the one ruin from the other, there are not all the same, some have greatest importance than others. And how you do it? The history and the people that are connected to it. This is why the Greco-Roman world will always take the spotlight, because most sites there are connected to real historical people, and recorded events. Most other civilizations never managed to record history as well, and therefore the importance of their ruins is hampered by lack of good knowledge of the past.

Temple of Athena Apteros Nike (wingless Victory) was built between 427 and 424 BC, during the Peace of Nicias. It is a tetrastyle (four column) Ionic structure with a colonnaded portico at both front and rear facades (amphiprostyle), designed by the architect Kallikrates. It has a prominent position on a steep bastion at the south west corner of the Acropolis to the right of the entrance, the Propylaea.

It was erected on top of the remains of an earlier 6th century BC temple to Athena, demolished by the Persians in 480 BC. The total height from the stylobate to the acme of the pediment while the temple remained intact was a modest 23 feet. The ratio of height to diameter of the columns is 7:1, the slender proportions creating an elegance and refinement not encountered in the normal 9:1 or 10:1 of Ionic buildings. Constructed from white pentelic marble, it was built in stages as war-starved funding allowed.
The friezes of the building's entablature were decorated on all sides with relief sculpture in the idealized classical style of the 5th century BC. The north frieze depicted a battle between Greeks entailing cavalry. The south frieze showed the decisive victory over the Persians at the battle of Plataea. The east frieze showed an assembly of the gods Athena, Zeus and Poseidon, rendering Athenian religious beliefs and reverence for the gods bound up in the social and political climate of 5th Century Athens.

The artist Callimachus is credited with the sculptures of Nikes on the frieze of the Temple of Athena Nike. His reputation in the 2nd century CE was reported in an aside by Pausanias as one "although not of the first rank of artists, was yet of unparalleled cleverness, so that he was the first to drill holes through stones"—that is, in order to enhance surface effects of light and shade in locks of hair, foliage and other details

Callimachus is credited with inventing the Corinthian capital, which Roman architects erected into one of the Classical orders

The Choragic Monument of Lysicrates built 335/334 BC, a wealthy patron of musical performances in the Theater of Dionysus

It is the first ever documented use of the Corinthian order on the exterior of a structure

I know, in the entire world's exist incredible archaeological sites

There are enormous amounts of fantastic archaeology in Europe that isn't roman or greek.

Greek and roman ruins tend to be very photogenic, though.
