Plan of the Parthenon

A drawing illustrating the floor plan of the Parthenon (447-438 BCE). The number of Doric columns in the outer colonnade (8x17) was unusual for a Greek temple (6x13). The cella contained the 12m high cult statue of Athena and the rear smaller chamber was used as the treasury of the city of Athens.
