12.A.6. The Altar of the Chians, Delphi

The big gray Chians altar of the temple of Apollo where sacrifices were made during the celebrations. From the inscription the altar was built at 5th cent B.C with the money of Chians (the people of Chios) who got in return the right to be allowed to ask first for the oracle without waiting in line.

Online photo because my photo shows an incomplete facade of the temple, so, for viewers to understand the visuals.
