    Description :

    “The nearby temple, the second temple of Hera, was built in about 450 BC. It has been in the past variously thought of as a temple dedicated to Poseidon. There are visible on the east side the remains of two altars, one large and one smaller. The smaller one is a Roman addition, built when they cut through the larger one to build a road to the forum. It is also possible that the temple was originally dedicated to both Hera and Zeus; some offertory statues found around the larger altar are thought to demonstrate this identification.”
