"The birthplace of Apollo himself. Impressive."

Grand Temple of Apollo

Grand Temple of Apollo

The Grand Temple of Apollo was the largest of the three temples in antiquity dedicated to the Greek god Apollo, located within the Sanctuary of Apollo on the island of Delos in Greece. Outside of it stood the Colossus of the Naxians, a giant statue of the god.

History

The construction of the temple began when the island became the seat of the Delian League between 475 and 450 BCE.[1] Built on top of the akropolis of the Sanctuary of Apollo, the temple also laid on top of an ancient tomb.[2]

During the Peloponnesian War, the temple was visited by the Spartan misthios Kassandra, who claimed the valuables within the temple, among them Theo's Royal Scepter.[2]

Behind the scenes

A part of a tomb with a dead end appears to be located below the Temple of Apollo, possibly unfinished from development for unknown reasons since there is nothing notable inside. The partial tomb contains lootable containers (no chests), snakes, and lootable skeletons.
