THE PARTHENON - THE OPISTHONAOS

The restoration of the Parthenon opisthonaos was completed in June 2004.
The project provided for the restoration of the architectural members of the entablature, which had been dismantled, and for conservation and restoration in situ of members that had remained on the monument.

The architectural members were conserved and, where necessary, they were filled in with new Pentelic marble.
New titanium clamps and dowels replaced the rusted clamps and dowels of earlier interventions.
As part of the project, works were carried out for effective protection of the west frieze.

After being dismantled, the frieze blocks were conserved with the use of the most recent technology and are currently exhibited in the Acropolis museum.
Casts have replaced the original members on the monument.
