William B. Dinsmoor, Jr
American School of Classical Studies at Athens (Princeton, NJ 08540-5232)

The Propylaia and the Entrance of the Athenian Acropolis

To prepare the text, to complete the plates, and to make a comprehensive photographic record for a definitive publication on the Propylaia, the gateway to the Athenian Acropolis, which was built between 437-432 B.C. by the architect Mnesicles. The publication, which will include studies of the building's predecessors, of its immediate environs, and of its later history, is essential for those who are interested in the classical world, not only from the architectural but also from the historical, the social, the religious and the psychological points of view.
