The Erechteion was built to a plan which was highly unusual for a temple or for any building of worship. It was where Athena Polias was worshipped but there were also altars devoted to Zeus Ippatos, Poseidon, Hephaestus, Erechtheus and his brother Voutes. The tomb of Erechteheus, the sacred snake of the Acropolis, the tomb of Cecrops and the Erechteias Sea were also found there.
