The Sanctuary of Apollo near Amyklai is a stoa-like building that enclosed a colossal statue of Apollo on three sides and was decorated with reliefs. The tomb of Hyacinthus is used as a statue base, combining the two local deities together.

The statue is thought to have been erected in the seventh or early sixth century BC, with the throne/temple complex being created in the later sixth century. The only remaining part of the throne is the foundation, measuring four meters long and one meter high.
