 Athens
In classical times, Erechtheus, seen as the perfect king by the Athenians, and who, in early times was often identified with Erichthonius (like him, he was sometime credited with the insitution of the festival of Panathenæa and the invention of the chariot), had a quasi-divine status, and was even eventually identified with Poseidon.
Erechtheus was succeeded by his son Cecrops, second of that name, who married Metadiousa, daughter of his nephew Eupalamus (the son of his brother Metion), then by their son Pandion, also second of that name.
He was, as was mentioned earlier, a son of Erechtheus' daughter Creüsa and either Apollo (in Euripides' version) or the Thessalian Xouthus, and the brother of Achæus (the eponym of the Achæans).

ii.) The reticence of Clemens, whose Christianity, as King truly remarks in his "Gnostics," was no more than a graft upon the congenial stock of his original Platonism, is quite natural.
He was an Initiate, a new Platonist, before he became a Christian, which fact, however much he may have fallen off from his earlier views, could not exonerate him from his pledge of secrecy.

Verder was aan de zuidkant een uit de Myceense tijd stammende trap, en in het noorden een Myceense theaterplaats.
Dit resulteerde in de bouw van twee gebouwen, een rechtshandig gebouw met een uitbouw aan de noordzijde voor het graf van Erechtheus, en een linkshandig gebouw met een uitbouw aan de zuidkant, op het oude tempelterras, dat de uitgang van de trap markeerde.

Thus the Greek Chronologers who followed Ephorus have made the kings of their several cities who lived before the times of the Persian Empire to reign about 35 or 40 years a piece one with another, which is a length so much beyond the course of nature as is not to be credited.
And two others of the daughters of Danaus married Archander and Archilites the sons of Achæus the son of Creusa the daugther of Erechtheus king of Athens, and therefore and the daughters of Danaus were three generations younger then Erechtheus, and by consequence contemporary to Theseus the son of Ægeus.
It seems to me therefore that Cecrops Cranaus, Erechtheus, Cecrops II and his brother Pandeon, and Ægeus, and Theseus andc reigned successively at Athens; Ægialeus, Europs, Telchin, Apis or Epopeus, Lamedon, Sicyon andc at Sicyon; and Phoroneus, Apis, Argus, Criasus andc at Argos.
