The most noteworthy sight in the Peiraeus is a precinct of Athena and Zeus. Both their images are of bronze; Zeus holds a staff and a Victory, Athena a spear. Here is a portrait of Leosthenes and of his sons, painted by Arcesilaus. This Leosthenes at the head of the Athenians and the united Greeks defeated the Macedonians in Boeotia
and again outside Thermopylae
forced them into Lamia
over against Oeta, and shut them up there.1
The portrait is in the long portico, where stands a market-place for those living near the sea—those farther away from the harbor have another—but behind the portico near the sea stand a Zeus and a Demos, the work of Leochares. And by the sea Conon2
built a sanctuary of Aphrodite, after he had crushed the Lacedaemonian warships off Cnidus
in the Carian peninsula.3
For the Cnidians hold Aphrodite in very great honor, and they have sanctuaries of the goddess; the oldest is to her as Doritis （Bountiful）, the next in age as Acraea （Of the Height）, while the newest is to the Aphrodite called Cnidian by men generally, but Euploia （Fair Voyage） by the Cnidians themselves.
