North Frieze (east end) of the Parthenon

Drawing of North Frieze

John Boardman, Greek Sculpture Classical Period, fig.93b (Marion Cox)

This shows the eastern end of the north frieze depicting part of the Panathenaic procession approaching the scene with the sacred peplos robe - to be seen around the corner of the temple, are men with cattle followed by men with horned sheep and then tray carriers, youths with water jars, pipers and cithara players. Not seen here, but following, is a cavalcade of four-horse chariots and ranks of riders matching those in the southern stream of the procession.
