|Summary:||Temple; on the ridge marking the southern extent of the city, east of the Temple of Herakles.|
|Date:||ca. 430 BC|
16.23/16.91 x 39.44/39.35 (stylobate); 9.68 x 27.40 (cella)
6 x 13; peripteral; pronaos and opisthodomos each distyle in antis; stairwells on either side of the entrance to the cella leading to attic space.
Angle contraction and other refinements
The temple was converted into a Christian church in the sixth century A.D., at which time the spaces between the columns were walled, the division between the cella and the opisthodomos was destroyed, and arches were cut into the cella walls. The blocks between the columns were removed in the 18th century. Due to its conversion, this temple is one of the best preserved Doric temples in existence. Its attribution to Concord is dubious.
Double contraction on all four sides; subtle shifting to correct metope problem; openings above cella porches to relieve lintels; curvature of stylobate; entasis and slant of columns; uncarved metopes.
