The Caryatid Porch of the Erechtheion. Pronounce that after a few glasses of wine! Another of the Acropolis wonders. These are copies. The originals are now housed in the Acropolis museum.
In the mid 1960s my dad took a picture of my sister and I sitting here in the Theatre of Dionysius. So here I sit again too many years later.
Looking up at the Parthenon on the Acropolis. Beautiful and serene even as a ruin.
A gold death mask.
One of the temples of the Acropolis. There were very few buildings during our visit that didn’t have masses of scaffolding due to some major restoration work.
The Acropolis Museum sits on stilts over a recently discovered Athenian settlement. Much of it can be viewed through glass floors. This section is an open atrium.
A model of some of the statuary which once adorned the roof line of the Parthenon. Many of the originals were smashed when they were tossed from their perches by Christians intent on destroying the idols of the Ancient Greek gods.
