The temple of Apollo Pythios was constructed in the second century BC. It stands on the southern part of the Agios Stephanos hill. This Doric-order temple is rather small compared to other Doric temples. Its peripteros consists of 6 Doric columns across the front and fewer than 12 along the sides. It was made of local limestone. After subsequent earthquakes and damage from bombing during WWII, only four columns remain. An Italian crew started excavating the temple in 1914. After the excavation, the Italian excavators re-erected the remaining columns of the East facade. Minimal archaeological work has been done since the initial excavation.
