Αθήνα,Ηφαίστειον νότια πλευρά - Athens,Hephaestion south porch
The Hephaistheum is a Doric hexastyle Temple. Its stylobate and superstructure are of Pentelic marble. The front and rear porches are distyle, in antis. The inner colonnade originally included two levels of Doric columns, surmounted by a wooden entablature. A monumental door separated the pronaos from the naos (the inner sanctum), which was dominated by a colossal statue of Hephaestus. The statue of Athena occupied the second place.
