The Temple of Apollo Bassitas

High in the mountains of Arcadia, the Temple of Apollo Epikourios at Bassae was built and rebuilt a number of times during the Archaic and Classical periods. According to the Roman traveler Pausanias, the architect was Iktinos, who was also responsible for building the Parthenon in Athens. Although the accuracy of this statement is uncertain, the temple remains one of the most spectacular and well preserved in Greece. This four-volume series, including large-scale plans, is based on a detailed study by University of Minnesota researchers. The series is complete.
