20.A.1. Caryatid from the Treasury of Syphnian

Delphi Archaeological Museum

There were two caryatids in the Treasury of Syphnian (view blog no. 12.A.4.) but only one survived. A caryatid is described as a sculpted female figure (maiden) serving as support of a column or pillar on her head.

Behind the statue is an entrance or a door to the treasury and this female sculture served as a decorative column.
