The Caryatids of the Erechtheum, Athens. Le Roy, Julien David Le Roy Arh.te de.l in Greciâ. Le Bas Sculp. The Caryatids of the Erechtheum, Athens. Architectural details of the Caryatids , porch of the Erechtheum, Athens. Paris chez H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, J.L. Nyon/ Jean Neaulme 1758
Copper engraved architectural detail of the Caryatids of the Erechtheum, Athens from Le Roy's "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece ." Black and white, verso blank.
The plate shows the "Porch of the Maidens" of the Erechtheum, showing four of the Caryatids supporting the roof of the porch; above detail of the roof and the capitals.

The temple was built between 421 and 406 BC.The need to preserve multiple adjacent sacred precincts likely explains the complex design. The main structure consists of up to four compartments, the largest being the east cella, with an Ionic portico on its east end. On the north side, there is another large porch with six Ionic columns, and on the south, the famous "Porch of the Maidens", with six draped female figures (caryatids) as supporting columns. The porch was built to conceal the giant 15-ft beam needed to support the southwest corner over the metropolis, after the building was drastically reduced in size and budget following the onset of the Peloponnesian war.
The six figures of the Caryatid Porch of the Erechtheum on the Acropolis at Athens. One of those original six figures, removed by Lord Elgin in the early 19th century, is now in the British Museum in London.
Although of the same height and build, and similarly attired and coiffed, the six Caryatids are not the same: their faces, stance, draping, and hair are carved separately; the three on the left stand on their right foot, while the three on the right stand on their left foot. Their bulky, intricately arranged hairstyles serve the crucial purpose of providing static support to their necks, which would otherwise be the thinnest and structurally weakest part. Good impression; some spots to blank margin ; wormhole to extreme lower right edge of page, far from image.
