Statue of Athene in the Parthenon - Athens


The Hekatompedos, as seen in this reconstruction, was divided longitudinally into three aisles by two rows of Doric columns. In a commanding position against the back wall of this temple stood Athene. Her right hand held a representation of Nike (Victory), while her left rested on the shield on whose surface was depicted the battle of the Amazons with the Greeks. Athene's breastplate was the 'aegis'. a goat-skin plated with scales, having the Gorgon's head in the centre.
