Drawn reconstuction of metopeThis Doric temple was built between about 530 and 510 BC. It is referred to by letter, as attribution to a deity is uncertain, though Apollo is a possible candidate. Three nearly complete metopes, and several fragments, survive. The centre of each pediment was decorated with a large, shallow relief head of Gorgo, made of painted clay (left)

Drawing of shallow relief head of Gorgo: Mon. Ant. della Reale Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei
