Caption:
General view of the Erechtheion from the southwest, showing the North Porch (at left), the "Olive Tree of Athena" (modern replacement!), and the Carytatid Porch. Note the modern (white) blocks of Pentelic marble which have been used in the reconstruction of the building. The blue limestone foundations of the Old Athena Temple (built c. 510-500 BC and destroyed by the Persians in 480 BC) are visible south of the Erechtheion. Mt. Lykabettos is the cone-shaped peak to the right. Photo taken in 1998.
