1 Review
The results of thirty years of excavation at the sanctuary where in the first century AD a small temple was built, at first circular, but later rebuilt in octagonal form with greater architectural pretensions. Also discovered were various associated buildings-a priest's house, a hostelry, a shop and domestic buildings-designed to serve the inhabitants of the sanctuary and worshipping visitors. Inscriptions and sculptures testify to a cult of Apollo and other associated deities.
