About this deal

These little screws are what holds your entire glasses frame together and are arguably one of the most important parts of glasses frames. Hidden hinges are identical to tenon hinges, except they have no additional fasteners such as rivets.

The east pediment originally contained 10 to 12 sculptures depicting the Birth of Athena. Most of those pieces were removed and lost during renovations in either the eighth or the twelfth century. [90] Only two corners remain today with figures depicting the passage of time over the course of a full day. Tethrippa of Helios is in the left corner and Selene is on the right. The horses of Helios's chariot are shown with livid expressions as they ascend into the sky at the start of the day. Selene's horses struggle to stay on the pediment scene as the day comes to an end. [91] [92] West pediment [ edit ] After the battle of Plataea, the Greeks swore never to rebuild their sanctuaries destroyed by the Persians during their invasion of Greece, but to leave them in ruins, as a perpetual reminder of the war. The Athenians directed their funds towards rebuilding their economy and strengthening their influence in the Delian League. When Pericles came to power, he envisioned a grand plan for transforming Athens into the centre of Greek power and culture. Construction started in 449 BC, and some scholars believe the building not to have been completed for some three decades, funds and workers having been redirected towards the Parthenon. The western frieze was completed between 445–440 BC, during which time the statue of Athena Hephaistia had been added to the shrine next to the cult statue of Hephaestus, [1] while the eastern frieze, the western pediment and several changes in the building's interior are dated by these scholars to 435–430 BC, largely on stylistic grounds. It was only during the Peace of Nicias (421–415 BC) that the roof was completed and the cult images were installed. Without this, your temples would eventually become warped and would require repeated heat adjustments to keep them in the correct shape. The wire core helps maintain adjustments carried out by your optician. Pelling, Christopher (1997). "Tragedy and Religion: Constructs and Readings". Greek Tragedy and the Historian. Oxford University Press. ISBN 978-0-19-814987-3. In 1456, Ottoman Turkish forces invaded Athens and laid siege to a Florentine army defending the Acropolis until June 1458, when it surrendered to the Turks. [113] The Turks may have briefly restored the Parthenon to the Greek Orthodox Christians for continued use as a church. [114] Some time before the end of the fifteenth century, the Parthenon became a mosque. [115] [116]Spring hinges are common amongst low cost glasses frames such as ready readers. They can cater for a wider range of head shapes and offer a one-size-fits-all mechanism. Thread seeking screws have a detachable "nose" which makes them easier to locate into the threaded tenons of a hinge. Screw head: Dowel The railway station is located in the centre of the city.

Using a process called riveting, sometimes called staking, the ends of the rivets are squashed, deformed and widened to squeeze the hinge onto the frame front or the temples. The decorative sculptures highlight the extent of mixture of the two styles in the construction of the temple. Both the pronaos and the opisthodomos are decorated with continuous Ionic friezes instead of the more typical Doric triglyphs, supplementing the sculptures at the pediments. In the pediments, the Birth of Athena (east) and the Return of Hephaistos to Olympos (west), and, as akroteria, the Nereids Thetis and Eurynome (west) accompanied by Nikai, the two ensembles are dated to ca.430 and ca.420–413BC respectively. The frieze of the pronaos depicts a scene from the battle of Theseus with the Pallantides in the presence of gods while the frieze of the opisthodomos shows the battle of Centaurs and Lapiths.

There are numerous styles of temple, but their main function is to keep your glasses secure when you’re wearing them.Over-tightening your glasses screws may damage the fine threads, either in the hinge tenons or on the screw shank. Take care to avoid this. Spivey, Nigel (October 2014). "Art and Archaeology" (PDF). Greece & Rome. 61 (2): 287–290. doi: 10.1017/S0017383514000138. S2CID 232181203. Characteristically, tenon hinges do not have any “give” as they are not sprung. When the temple is fully open and meets the frame, a tenon hinge will no let it open any further; a similar function to a house-door. Thompson, H. (1962). "The Sculptural Adornment of the Hephaisteion". American Journal of Archaeology. 66 (3): 339–47. doi: 10.2307/501469. JSTOR 501469. S2CID 193064420. This melt makes a sturdy bond between the hinge and the frame without the need for rivets. As you can imagine, hidden hinges are a sleeker design with less components, however they are very rarely repairable.
