Pandion Sanctuary

The foundations of the Pandion sanctuary were unearthed during excavations for the construction of the Acropolis museum that now exists at the east corner of the Acropolis. The 40m x 17.5 m open-air walled sanctuary was built around 450 BCE to probably serve the Pandion (all-Zeus) festival. It was divided in two areas separated by a wall. The west area was used as a sanctuary and was built (or reconstructed) during the building program Perikles, while the east part is dated to pre-Perikles era and it is believed that it was utilized as a service area for the festival.
