Sanctuary of Pythian Apollo - Ancient Thera

Hellenistic sanctuary in honor of Pythian, as indicated by an inscription found carved on a column. A three aisled basilica with a double narthex (vestibule) and an arch in the middle aisle was built on top of the ruins of the temple, using materials from the ancient temple in its construction, probably in the 6th century AD. There is also evidence of a cult of the Dioscuri in the area. Next to the temple, there is an imposing building with a large colonnaded courtyard, which is probably the house of the Vasilisti, that is the headquarters of the association of members of the Ptolemaic garrison, dedicated to the worship of the Ptolemaic kings. The activities of the club were closely linked to the nearby sanctuary of the Egyptian gods.
