The Erechtheion is an Ionic Temple on the north side of the Acropolis and it was dedicated to Athena and Poseidon.It is opposite the Parthenon and it was built entirely of marble from Mount Penteli.The Caryatides (each one sculpted in a different manner ) supported the roof of the south porch of the Erechtheion, in place of the typical columns and they were holding it with elegance and grace.Today only copies of the Caryatides are shown. The 5 original ones are displayed in the New Acropolis Museum
