These surviving sculptures and relief frieze are from the Siphnian Treasury. They depict the Delphic myth of the struggle between Apollo and Herakles over the oracle's tripod. Herakles attempted to steal the tripod in order to create his own oracle elsewhere. The friezes from the eastern and northern side of the Siphnian Treasury survive in part. The eastern frieze depicts the Trojan War, watched over by the gods, and the northern frieze shows the Gigantomachy, the battle of the gods against the giants.
This is the better preserved of the two karyatids that stood in place of columns in the Siphnian Treasury. The Naxian Sphinx, dedicated circa 570 BC, depicts the mythical creature of the Sphinx, which had the body of a lion, the head of a woman, and the wings of a bird.
