I wish Petrie had measured the Parthenon too. I have two or three maps of the Athenian Acropolis, none of which agrees with the others. The main axis of the stylobate of the Parthenon is oriented somewhere between 13 degrees north of east and 21 degrees north of east and depends upon which map you are looking at. Different authors appear to have pointed the Parthenon in whatever direction would prove their pet theories.
