East Slope

The East Slope. Here I have added some annotations to help you see the evidence a little better. The stele bedding discovered by Broneer is in the center of the photo, on the way up to the East Cave, but not really at its entrance. The "True Aglaureion" inscription was found a good distance in front of the cave (lower right), and at a much lower elevation. The rock-cut steps discovered by Broneer in 1933 are not really visible in this photo, and but I have indicated the general location. The steps lead up to a wider, flat cutting, possible for an altar or other monument. All of these features demonstrate that this area had some importance in antiquity.
