Transcript TEMPLE OF PANDBOSUS, DEDICATED TO THE NYMPH PANDROSUS, ONE OF THE DAUGHTERS OF CECROPS, FOUNDER OF ATHENS. " The Pandroseum is a small but very particular building. The entablature is supported by women, called Caryatides. Their story- is thus related. The Greeks, victorious in the Persian war, jointly destroyed Carya, a city of the Peloponnesus, which had favoured the common enemy. They cut oflf the males, and carried into captivity the women, whom they compelled to retain their former dress and ornaments, though in a state of servitude. The architects of those times, to perpetuate the memory of their punishment, represented them, as in this instance, each with a burden on her head, one hand uplifted to it, and the other hanging down by her side. The images were six in number, all looking toward the Parthenon. Three in front, with that next to the Propylea, still remain, but greatly mutilated. This temple was open latticed between the statues; and in it was the olive tree said to have been produced by Minerva, in her contest with Neptune for the patronage of the city."
