The Athenian Acropolis

"There is but one entry to the Acropolis. It affords no other, being precipitous throughout and having a strong wall. The gateway has a roof of white marble, and down to the present day it is unrivalled for the beauty and size of its stones."

- Pausanias, A Description of Greece I.22.4
Trans. W.H.S. Jones 1918
