Siphnian Treasury North Side
Reconstruction by Tournaire
The Siphnian Treasury is the most important of the Delphi treasuries.
Siphnos had struck it rich in her gold and silver mines and the
treasury was a tithe from her new wealth, built before the island was sacked
by the Samians in 525 and the mines flooded; but little before, we may
judge, and there are signs haste and incompletion.
About 525 BCE
