Αθήνα,ναός Ηφαίστου εσωτερικό - Athens,Hephaestus Temple interior
The reliefs of the frieze, along with the metopes of the Temple, are sculpted in Parian marble and represent the labors of Hercules and the exploits of Theseus. Only eighteen of the sixty-eight metopes were sculpted; the fifty others were probably painted. The pediments were adorned with sculptures, of which only the smallest traces remain. The frieze of the pronaos illustrates the mythical contest of the Athenians and Lapiths against the Centaurs.
