Product description

The famous monumental gateway to the Acropolis is a successor to a Mycenaean building. But what did this Bronze Age gateway, in use up to the fifth century BC, look like, and what did the architect Mnesikles tear down before he started his construction? This detailed architectural study explores these problems, and reveals the existence of an earlier theatral area for viewing the Panathenaic procession, and some half-built 'trial runs', below the current Propylon. "This is a first class monograph; it deals with its subject intelligently and economically; the evidence is presented with clarity and precision; argument is cogent; the illustrations, particularly the drawings by the author, are exemplary; and the book is well produced" C. W. J. Eliot, Phoenix (1982, pp. 184-185).
