The Temple of Apollo

Apollo was the most important god for local people. An honorary temple was built in front of the theatre for him. Because of the rock mass at the back of the temple which was excavated it assumed that there were large steps to reach the temple of Apollo.

Doric style marble columns which have higher quality than main street columns were used for the temple. Local people believed that Apollo and Artemis met here. 

A prediction center and the gate to the hell have been also found near the temple.
