The Temple of Amphiaraus is the temple that stands in the Amphiareion, an oracular sanctuary dedicated to the god/hero Amphiaraus. The temple was constructed during the Late Classical or early Hellenistic period. The temple has no external colonnade, but within the cella it has two rows of columns, perhaps Ionic in order. There is a porch in front of the cella and an adyton at the rear. It functioned to support the role of the Amphiareion as a sacred place for healing, incubation and sacrifice to the gods.
