The Erechtheion: The identity of Athens

Saturday, 8 November, 2014

Ancient mythical figures left their mark on the most ancient cult site on the Acropolis, that of Athena Polias. The Erechtheion, a remarkable building, was the last temple to house this significant cult. Together with the Museum’s Archaeologist-Hosts, visitors will explore the unique character of this temple through its architectural, decorative, and religious features, and discuss its later history. The presentation will be enhanced by the use of models and digital tablets.

The gallery talk 'The Erechtheion: The identity of Athens' is part of the program Alternating Gallery Talks of the Acropolis Museum.
