The Doric temple is located on a table-shaped hill, although little remains other than the lowest course of the foundations, the rest having been quarried for the use in local buildings and the church in the village of Mazi. Excavations have been conducted as early as 1879 by a team of Greek archaeologists, and again in in 1959-60. More recent excavations were conducted in 1978-81. A complete triglyph and metope block was recovered along with 20 column drums. Woodward lists this temple as "Athena at Makiston" although it is referred to other places as belonging to the location near Nea Skillontia or Skillountia.
