Athenian Treasury East Side
Reconstruction by Tournaire
The Athenian Treasury at Delphi, now rebuilt on the site, is the
best known of these monuments, one of the latest of the Archaic series
and, like the earliest, of the Doric order.
Pausanias says it was dedicated after Marathon (490 BCE) but style
and architecture have suggested to some scholars a somewhat earlier date.
It is becoming more fashionable now to believe that on this occasion
Pausanias was right.
About 490-480 BCE
