The Erechtheion on the Athenian Acropolis presents an interesting puzzle to both historians and archaeologists since its function as a working building is unclear. It seems to have been designed to incorporate several sacred precincts and has a very different floor plan and structure from other Greek public buildings, including the famous porch of the Caryatids, whose columns are in the form of women rather than the Doric columns of the other buildings. This series of papers presents a thorough and enlightening overview of the nature of the building's remains, its history of renovation and destruction, and the purposes to which it may have been put. It includes photographs, diagrams, and charts, the result of a truly Herculean effort on the part of those scholars who accomplished the first reconstruction of the Acropolis.
