Aegina Apollo  520 - 519  BC


The temple of Apollo at Aegina is nicknamed Kolona, meaning column, because there is just one column remaining today from its ancient construction, although when Edward Dodwell traveled through Greece in the early eighteen hundreds, there were still two columns standing. The other column has since disappeared. The temple dates from the 6th century BC, even earlier than the Parthenon in Athens. Constructed in the Doric architectural style, it is thought to have 11 columns on the sides and 6 columns on the ends.
