Issue: Destruction of the archaios neos by the Persians in 480; organization of the center of the sanctuary in the following decades; result: free space in front of the altar; archaion agalma in Erechtheion.

Diverging interpretations:
a) more space for cult participants and the festival (Valavanis)
b) shock, cluster of cult sites, agalma joins the cult associates (Meyer)
c) afterthought, transfer of agalma from Parthenon (Shear)

The seminar is part of the project ‘SiGrH - Sites of Greek History. Monuments, spaces, borders’ (resp. Giorgia Proietti), in the framework of the programme ‘Dipartimento di Eccellenza 2023- 2027’. For any queries: giorgia.proietti [at] unitn.it
