Probably built around the II century AD, it showed initially a pronaos and a large cella. It was substantially changed after the earthquake in 262 AD, when the cult space was waterproofed to become a cistern, probably connected to the adjacent Shrine of the Meander Mosaic. It seems that it was completly destroyed by the later earthquake in 365.
