The Caryatids Of The Acropolis

These aren't the real ones - they are standing, preserved, just down the hill from the Acropolis in the new Acropolis Museum (and one is still held in the British Museum....), but these replica beautiful ladies holding up the roof of porch on the Erechtheion are still breathtaking. They face the impressive Parthenon remains, and captured my attention for much of my time on the hill.
