ATHENS, GREECE - APRIL 17 : A general view of the Porch of the Caryatids of the Erechtheum with the city in the distance, on April 17, 2007, in Athens, Greece. The Erechtheum was built on the Acropolis, between 421 and 405 BC, in the Ionic Order. The Porch of the Caryatids is on the South side of the Temple and comprises 6 sculptures of maidens bearing libations, in place of columns, standing on a high base and supporting a decorated flat roof. The Caryatids wear a Peplos with a short cloak hanging from their shoulders. (Photo by Manuel Cohen)
