Cast of part of a ionic capital from the Erechtheion, Athens

Plaster cast

Museum number: M1250

Curatorial note

This cast is more fragmentary than photographs indicate, being built into a wooden box frame for mounting on the wall.

Soane knew the Erechtheion, a temple on the Acropolis, as the 'Temple of Erechtheus' and only from secondary published sources and the reports of others, for example James Stuart and Nicholas Revett, as he never visited Greece himself.
