The Temple of Hera at Olympia, determined from satellite imagery compared with "Olympia, so-called Temple of Hera. View from the East" on page 123, figure 63 and "Plan of the Sanctuary of Zeus, Olympia" on page 124, figure 64 in Pedley, Sanctuaries and the Sacred in the Ancient Greek World. Pedley dates the construction of the temple to ca. 600-590 B.C. and from the writings of Pausanias we know that the temple was still in use during the 2nd century A.D.
