The next monument after the Sanctuary of Aphrodite, again on our right, is the Monument of Artemidoros. Approximately two hundred fifty meters after that, we see its sanctuary. Artemidoros, the son of Apollonios, was from Perga in Pamphylia. A dream led him to settle in Thera in his old age. Here he was active founding temples and adorning the city. He was honored for this contribution with an olive branch wreath and the right to citizenship in Thera.
