Anthony Ayiomamitis, our photographer/astronomer friend in Athens, writes that last night was a “Marvelous opportunity to observe and image the rising full moon (99.7% phase) last night against the Propylaea and which introduce the Temple of Poseidon Erechtheus at the Acropolis of Athens. The Erechtheum (421-407 BC) is perhaps best known for the stunning Caryatids made of pentelic marble and which adorn the southern side of the structure. The opposite side of the Erechtheum is dedicated to the (Acropolis) gods Poseidon and Erechtheus and who battled unsuccessfully against Athena for the right to protect and be the patrons of the city of Athens.” source here
