Choragic Monument of Lysicrates
The Choragic Monument of Lysicrates stands in the heart of the Plaka, the historic quarter of Athens at the base of the Acropolis.Erected in 334 B.C., the compact structure is only thirtythree feet high but displays the most elaborate version of the Greek Corinthian order surviving from ancient times. This rendition of the Corinthian is unique to this monument. Since its recording and publication by James Stuart and Nicholas Revett in the first volume of The Antiquities of Athens (1762), the Lysicrates Corinthian has been utilized to enrich important Greek Revival buildings on both sides of the Atlantic.Like the Choragic Monument of Thrasyllus, the Lysicrates monument was erected to commemorate winning first prize in a chorus performance. The prize, a bronze trophy in the form of a tripod supporting an urn, was placed on top of the monuments fancy carved finial. The appearance of the trophy is recorded in basrelief figures on the frieze behind the monuments column capitals. The monument stood partially encased in the walls of a French Capuchin monastery when Stuart and Revett encountered it in 1751. They published their drawing of its existing state in The Antiquities of Athens along with their measured drawings.The monastery burned in 1821. Its ruins were then demolished, leaving the monument a freestanding structure as originally built.
