The temple belongs to the sacred area behind the so-called Theatre 3, and it is aligned with the altar beneath the latter. It was probably rebuilt a first time in the V century BC and then again in the II AD. Its name comes from a Chiot chalice dedicated to Castor and Pollux found during the excavations.
