The Erechtheon was a temple on the north side of the Acropolis in Athens dedicated to both Erechtheus a king of Greek myth and the legendary founder of the city of Athens and also the god Poseidon. The temple was built circa 421 to 407 BCE near the end of Pericles’s Golden Age and his massive building program that transformed the city of Athens. In the courtyard outside the temple grew the city’s sacred olive tree. The porch on the north side of the temple as seen here is considered by many to be one of the best examples of columns of the ionic order. The porch on the south side was supported by six maiden figures (the six caryatids). In the nineteenth century Lord Elgin–of the Elgin Marbles infamy–carted off one of the caryatids to his home in Scotland and destroyed another one in the process. Thus only four remain in the Acropolis Museum. (See below for the Porch of the Maidens. Some of the caryatids are reproductions.) Photos credit C. Wayne and Dorothy Miller.
