The Sanctuary of Apollo at Cyrene was established at the northwest corner of the urban center of the city in the seventh century BC. It underwent three periods of expansion and rebuilding between the seventh and the fourth centuries BC, and it remained in use until Late Antiquity, despite destruction by fire in the Jewish rebellion of the early second century AD. The sanctuary included a sacred spring, a large peripteral Doric temple dedicated to Apollo Karneios, and, in its final phases, a series of shrines to other divinities, including Artemis, Isis, and Hades. During the reign of Trajan, a Roman bath complex was also added to the sanctuary.
