12.A.5. Tholos of Delphi

The Tholos is (among the ancient structures) the circular building in the center of the Sanctuary of Athena. It is attributed to the cult of heroes or deities of the underworld. In 373 B.C. a large earthquake destroyed a large part of the sanctuary. Only three of the exterior columns have today been restored.
