Erechtheion

Cds IMG 2696

The Erechtheion is one of the buildings that forms teh Acropolis in Athens, Greece. It honours both Athena (godess of athens) and Posidean (god of the sea). It has a lovely porch with 6 figures supporting the roof. The building is actually smaller than originally planned due to budgetary constraints due to the cost of the Peloponnesian war (yes even in ancient times budget was a concern).
