The inscriptions, which provide evidence about aspects of how mines were operated, are particularly important. In the gallery at the far end of the exhibition are relief plaques from the frieze of the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion (mid-5th c. BC), on which one may make out scenes from the Battle of Centaurs and Battle of Giants, allegories for the victory of the Athenians, “champions of the Greeks”, against the Persians.
