Propylaia

These volumes present the definitive account of one of the masterpieces of Greek architecture, the grand entrance to the Athenian Akropolis designed in the 5th century B.C. by the architect Mnesikles. Written by a father and son team over a period of 80 years, the two books present a complete overview of the development of one of the monuments of western civilization. No further volumes are planned.
