East pediment (Birth of Athena): Female running to left towards Figures E and F (probably Demeter and Kore). Her peplos skirt blows back in deep, arcing folds which complement the lines of her widely striding legs. Her rapid movement also causes her cloak to billow out behind her. Variously identified as Artemis, Eileithyia (goddess of childbirth) or simply a running messenger.
Condition: Single fragment
Draped female figure missing right forearm, left arm, and part of billowing cloak. Surface is chipped and abraded.
