Acropolis, North Slope, North Slope Long Rocks

View of the northwest slope and caves from the Agora. View from the north. In this photo you can clearly see the entrances to Cave D and even the rock-cut niches in Cave D2. Cave C is mostly blocked from view by the large tree, but Cave B (Apollo) is fully exposed directly beneath the Pinakothiki of the Propylaia. At the far right is the Beule Gate, the Late Roman entrance to the Acropolis (now nicknamed after a French archaeologist). The Agrippa Monument and the Temple of Athena Nike are also shown. The upper level of the Stoa of Attalos in the Agora is partially visible in the lower left corner of the picture.
