Amyklai, Sanctuary of Apollo. E. Zavvou (Ε' ΕΠΚΑ) reports the seizure of 16 architectural members from the property of K. Chroni at Kalogonia, Sparta. These include one piece with relief carving of lotus flowers intertwined with lotus buds, which probably belongs to the sculpted decoration of the Temple of Apollo.
In 2010, press attention was drawn to the decision of the Central Archaeological Council to permit the removal from the walls of the 12th-century Church of Profitis Ilias and the 13th-century Church of Ag. Theodoroi of seven architectural members from the Amyklaion throne and the altar of Apollo. Further spolia are noted in the churches of Ag. Nikolaos and Ag. Kyriaki. The seven members will be replaced with replicas, with no threat to the stability of the church buildings.
