View of the Erechtheion. Workmen excavating to reveal the base of the prostasis underneath the Caryatids. Ottoman official Dizdar Aǧa is leaning on his son-in-law's shoulder while two other Ottomans are supervising the excavations in order to keep him informed and to ensure that the British are not carrying away the archaeological findings. On the foreground a man, probably James Stuart, drawing the monument.
