Abstract

This paper examines the archaeological records of the socalled Crossroads Enclosure, a little shrine located in the northwest corner of the Athenian Agora which was excavated in the early '70s. This hieron, dedicated to female deities, has for a long time been identified as / associated with the famous Leokorion, the shrine of the daughters of Leos, who gave their lives to save Athens. A new examination of the literary sources and the analysis of structural remains and materials available both on site and in the nearby well suggest that the shrine might have been dedicated to Aglauros, Pandrosos and Herse, the daughters of Cecrops, the first mythical king and founder of the city of Athens.
