Inscription Text: 
"The remains of some of the sculpture of Phidias under the peak of the roof. Most of them were carried off by Lord Elgin. This gives but a small idea of its beauty, none at all of its size. It is like all of these ruins, of beautiful white marble, not much darkened even by its extreme age, 500 B.C."
