  • Temple of Apollo at Thermos at Thermon (750 BC - 330 BC)



The Temple of Apollo at Thermos is a sanctuary for the Greek God Apollo. The temple of Apollo was the focal point for the ancient Greek sanctuary of Thermos. It was used to pay honor and respect to the Greek God Apollo. The temple was built over the remains of Megaron B ca. 630 BC - ca. 610 BC. It is incredibly famous for its archaic terracotta metopes decorated with mythological scenes. This is one of the earliest records of this art form in Greece. It is also one of the oldest Doric temples in Greece.
