Archaeological Society of Athens
Ithome. P. Themelis (ASA) reports on the 2010 excavation season at the temple of Eileithyia. On the south slope of Ithome, northwest of the temple of Artemis Limnatis, the remains of a tetrastyle prostyle ionic temple were investigated. This had an almost square sekos (5.15 x 5.45m) and a prodomos (1.8 x 5.15m). The base of a marble cult statue was found in situ in front of the west wall of the sekos (Fig. 1), and the torso of the statue outside the south part of the temple. Three rooms behind the ruins of the temple are ascribed to a shepherd’s hut of the fourth century AD (Fig. 2).
