Corinth  Apollo  540  BC

DoricOrdertemplate2 copy.jpg

The Temple of Apollo is a Doric peripteral temple, 6 X 15 columns, constructed ca. 560 B.C., and built on the site of an earlier seventh century B.C. temple. The structure currently sits on a hill overlooking the remains of the Roman marketplace (agora). The temple was destroyed in 373 B.C. in an earthquake and rebuilt for the third time in 330 B.C. The Temple of Apollo is one of the very few monuments from the Ancient Greek city that survived the Roman destruction in 146 B.C.


The stylobate measures 53.82 X 21.48 m, and is characterized by monolithic limestone columns from a quarry near the temple location. Only seven columns remain standing, although elements of the ground plan are visible in the bedrock cuttings. The temple includes a distyle-in-antis pronaos and opisthodomos as well as two cella chambers. The western cella had 4 interior columns and the eastern had 8 interior columns.
