The Propylaea, the emblematic entrance of the Acropolis, was built in 437-432 BC by the architect Mnesicles. Here there were works of important artists, known from descriptions of the traveler Pausanias, and Roman replicas. It consists of the central propylon and two side wings. The central building is divided into two sections by a wall with five doors, from which the middle one is the widest. It consisted of marble blocks carved in the shape of ceiling coffers and painted blue with gold stars.
