Bibendum
This Doric temple was built in the epoch of Pericles by Iktinos, under Phidias. His statue, dedicated to Athena, decorated the sanctuary. In the Byzantine epoch this statue taken to Constantinople, was destroyed during the siege of the city by the Crusaders; the temple was then converted into a church. Later it became a cathedral, then a mosque, and it preserved most of its sculptures until an explosion of the gunpowder store in 1687 destroyed many of them. Major restoration from 1834.
