“The temple on the rocky plateau is identified with the Temple of Apollo mentioned in the sources. The original temple dating from the early 7th to the early 6th century BC. It was made of stone, bricks and wooden beams and carried a heavy and intricate quadruple roof made of clay tiles. It was probably a simple construction without exterior columns, but in another sense it was circumstantial. During the middle of the 6th century BC, a double-storied Doric temple was erected on the site of the destroyed original building. It was surrounded by six columns on the narrow sides and fifteen on the long sides, and was oriented on the A-D axis. The main building consists of a pronao and a rear, with two columns in the wall, and a nave with two compartments, separated by a transverse concrete wall with a possible intermediate opening. The western room identifies with a vault. Two rows of columns ran through the two chambers of the nave, but were removed in Roman times when the church was radically renovated. Part of the east wing was destroyed by the erection of the Ottoman Bey's residence in Corinth.”
