Description Erechtheum:

The Erechtheum is an ancient Greek temple on the north side of the Acropolis of Athens in Greece.

The entire temple is on a slope, so the west and north sides are about 3 m (9 ft) lower than the south and east sides. It was built entirely of marble from Mount Pentelikon, with friezes of black limestone from Eleusis which bore sculptures executed in relief in white marble.
