Description

The Athenian Treasury at Delphi, located just below the Temple of Apollo. It is considered to have been built sometime between 510 and 480 B.C., and "was a votive building in the form of a reduced scale temple, designed to hold the multitude of Athenian offerings to the Delphi oracle. The building was constructed entirely of Parian marble and had a Doric frieze decorated with 30 metopes. It is a distyle in antis building with a porch before the entrance to the cella, measuring 10 x 6 meters." (Source: Sakoulas, Thomas. "Treasury of the Athenians." Ancient-Greece.org. N.p., n.d.
