  On the northwestern slopes of Mt. Parnon, at an altitude of 900 m., lies Karyes, a pretty village near the site of the ancient town with the same name where Artemis Karyatis was worshipped. The goddess was accompanied by the virgin Caryatid nymphs, whose statues adorned the Erechthion of the Acropolis at Athens. At the village there is a copy of the Erechthion and the statues. The church of Panagia has probably been erected on the site of the goddess’s temple.
