Foce del Sele, Treasury

Site: Foce del Sele
Type: Treasury
Summary: Treasury building attributed to the Sybarites.
Date: 570 B.C. - 550 B.C.
Period: Archaic

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.

Other Notes:
Of thirty-eight metopes belonging to the treasury, three are illegible.
