THE TEMPLE OF ATHENA (Miletus)


This temple was built in the middle of the 5th century B.C. The stone workmanship of the temple was not spectacular. The size of the temple is 18 m x 30 m. The square area in the middle is the cella where the cult statues were kept. There are six columns in the front, seven at the back and ten on each side. It is a similiar construction to the temple of Artemis in Ephesos.

Unfortunately no ancient documents are found related to the temple. Our knowledge is limited to only the architectural remains.
