The Temple of Asklepios at Epidauros

Photo of Temple of Asklepios site

This small Doric temple was built between about 380 and 370 BC. Although now in ruins, we know it was elaborately decorated and once housed a gold and ivory cult statue. The pediments showed Amazons fighting at the Sack of Troy. The acroteria (sculptures on the roof) were figures of Nike (Victory) and women riders, perhaps personifications of breezes.
