Athena in a Pediment at Eleusis
Some of the West Pediment figures of the Parthenon were copied (and
others adjusted) at a much reduced scale for the second-century CE pediment
of Temple F (or Treasury B) at Eleusis devoted to the rape of Persephone.
Temple F (or Treasury B) may have been dedicated to Sabina, the
wife of Hadrian.
The so-called Parthenonian sculptures, some of which are on display
in the Museum, came from this building.
Second century CE
