At the northwest corner of the Acropolis, just below the north hall of the Propylaia, a Roman stairway leads down from the terrace on which the Pedestal of Agrippa stands to a small gate (now walled up), used to access the sacred cave containing the spring known as the Klepsydra, one of Athens' ancient sources of water.
