THE SHRINES OF ATTICA 105

geniality and beauty ! In this sunset glow the Parthe-
non, the magnificent Propylsea, the Erechtheum, and
the bewitching temple of Nike are gilded with super-
natural light, as if the sun loved to heighten their
beauty. And, when the moon rises and in the deep
silence silvers the old rock and the temples upon
it, you forget the things of to-day; and in the witch-
ery of the moonlight Athene seems to come once
more to claim her holy place, and you are a willing
worshipper at her shrine.
