INFOFACTS - The Erechtheum(Porch of Maidens) is an Ionic temple on Athens’ Acropolis north of the Parthenon. Challenged by uneven ground and by the fear of destroying former religious sanctuaries, the architect was forced to construct it with a complicated asymmetrical floor plan. The entablature, or top, of the porch is supported by six statues of maidens, called caryatids, instead of by columns. Sculptures from the Erechtheum, the Parthenon, and other buildings of ancient Athens are preserved as the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum in London.
