About this work

Description

The Doric columns of the temple are mostly in good shape, though some straggly ruins of the temple stand around the columns. Two men next to the temple dance the romaika, the Greek national dance, while another sits and watches them. The romaika is danced by many performers in a circle who jump from one foot to the other
