ATHENS - Mets, Sanctuary of Zeus Meilichios - 2014
Type of Operation
The location of the sanctuary of Zeus Meilichios is suggested by the discovery of sections of possible fourth century BC temple relief decoration in 2012 during continuing excavations at the site of the Temple of Artemis Agrotera – much discussed in previous ARs (see also Travlos, PDAA, pp.112-119). A votive inscription was found here in 2014 built into a later wall suggesting its identification with Zeus Meilichios, whose worship was linked with the Diasia festival (Thucydides I 126.6): Δ[ΙΙ] ΜΕΙ[ΛΙΧΙΩ].
