Monuments reported by ancient authors (2)

Ancient temples

Temple of Pythian Apollo

As you go from Pheneus to Pellene and Aegeira, an Achaean city, after about fifteen stades you come to a temple of Pythian Apollo. I found there only its ruins, which include a large altar of white marble. Here even now the Pheneatians still sacrifice to Apollo and Artemis, and they say that the sanctuary was made by Heracles after capturing Elis.


Ancient tombs

The tomb of Telamon

Here also are tombs of heroes, those who joined the campaign of Heracles against Elis and lost their lives in the fighting. They are Telamon, buried quite near the river Aroanius, a little farther away than is the sanctuary of Apollo, and Chalcodon.
