Caption:
Part of an Archaic terrace wall built during the construction of the Older Parthenon. This wall is visible on the south side of the Parthenon, near the western end. This early 5th century wall is partially built over a section of the Mycenaean fortification wall. Looking down (into the area covered in shade in the photo) you can make out the "Cyclopean" masonry of the Mycenaean fortificiation wall.
