Summary: Treasury building attributed to the Sybarites.
Date: 570 B.C. - 550 B.C.
The remains of the naos are the end wall to the west and the long walls to a maximum height of four courses. There is no trace of a pronaos or a wall between pronaos and naos. Reconstruction remains largely hypothetical.
The erection of the treasury has been attributed to the Sybarites, and its incompleteness to the destruction of their city.
Of thirty-eight metopes belonging to the treasury, three are illegible.
