Artist's Description

The Temple of Poseidon, God of the Sea at Soúnio (Cape Sounion) in southern Attica, Greece.

Standing atop sheer cliffs overlooking the Aegean Sea, the marble temple has served as a landmark for sailors from ancient times.

15 of the original 34 marble Doric columns survive today.

Construction on a grand Temple of Poseidon began around 500 BC but was never completed; the temple and all the votive offerings were destroyed by the Persians in 480 BC. The Temple of Poseidon that now stands at Soúnio was built in 444 BC atop the older temple ruins.

Soúnio has been a sacred site since very ancient times. The “Sanctuary of Sounion” is first mentioned in the Odyssey, as the place where Menelaus stopped during his return from Troy to bury his helmsman, Phrontes Onetorides.
