Photographer's Note

Many temples and sanctuaries have been discovered throughout the Mediterranean region that were dedicated to the god Apollo, including Delphi, Bassae and Epidaurus in Greece, Pompeii in Italy, and Didyma in present-day Turkey. However, the Temple of Apollo at Corinth in Greece is one of the oldest temples dedicated to this god and is even one of the oldest temples in Greece in general. It is also unique in that its dedication to Apollo has been in question for centuries, as well as its functions in given time periods.

The temple of which remains still stand today was built around 560 B.C.E., while the majority of other temples to Apollo were built a century later. This structure was built over the site of an even older temple built in the 7th century B.C.E., which was one of the first temples to have a tile roof rather than thatch. Worship of Apollo was in fact present in Corinth as early as the 7th century B.C.E.
