Temple of Apollo at Sunset


This is a beautiful canvas print of the Temple of Apollo at Sunset.

Temple of Apollo was constructed between 431 and 420 BCE. The Temple was burnt down in 423 BCE. It was then restored and the roof was decorated with a gilded copper quadriga (chariot pulled by four horses).

Years later, the temple lost its roof once again due to a severe thunderstorm. The temple’s original wooden ceiling had caved in, and there was no chance to restore it any longer. The temple, unfortunately, fell into decay.

In another fire in 165 BCE, the temple suffered more damage as most of the sculptures were destroyed. Restoration work started immediately after the fire, but it took 240 years to complete. Today you can see that a lot of parts are missing from the main building and only 7 columns of 15 columns still stand.
