The western cella of the Erechtheum was in all probability divided into two chambers by a wall running east and west (Fig. 7).
But it is not to be supposed that the west cella of the Erechtheum was ever called an opisthodomus.
The present plan of the interior of the Erechtheum offers a number of difficulties.
The new plan of the Erechtheum is interesting in the light of the Chandler inscription.
The are interior walls on either side of a door which in the Erechtheum reached up only five courses above the orthostates.
But the chiseling is more careful than the chiseling done at that time in the Erechtheum.
The Erechtheum as originally planned was an altogether symmetrical structure.
The north porch at once determines that axis in the west cella of the Erechtheum.
The peculiar plan of the Erechtheum has given rise to much speculation.
Its Greek origin is undoubted, and it is supposed to be the missing figure from the Erechtheum at Athens.
