Caption:
View of the Acropolis, its South and East Slopes, and the Olympieion from the Ardettos Hill. Especially prominent is the large East Cave. Note also the steep, projecting spur of rock immediately to the right of the East Cave. This is one of the steepest parts of the Acropolis and may have been the spot where the Persians finally scaled the citadel in 480 B.C. View from the southeast.
