Erechtheion

Athens, Greece
4.9 / 10
According to ancient legend, the Erechtheion was built on the site of a dispute between Athena and Poseidon, during which the gods did not share power over Attica. The temple was erected at the end of the 5th century BC. in the ionic style, the name of the architect was lost in the thickness of centuries. The portico of Caryatid, which was added to the temple later, is well preserved. It is a series of female sculpture columns supporting the roof. The authorship is attributed to the sculptor Kallimakh (according to another version - to Alkamen).
