A few pics of the site would have been nice - not slamming you kannin... The article only had pics of a shovel (!) and a quick internet search only revealed a single photo of a pillar/column....

Thanks for posting though... That period of history was always a favorite of mine...

Thrace,...Spartacus was Thracian. He was one bad-a$$ mofo, they say.
Pretty OT, nice find of the temple though.

There won't be pictures perhaps save a few artifacts from the Iron age if we are lucky.

From the article in the OP:

Quote

The sanctuary of Zeus and Hera is believed to have been destroyed in the fifth century CE to enable Christians to build a nearby small single-nave church.


The sanctuary was most likely destroyed. Wish the earlier Christians were not so hell bent on destroying every other belief system...

i agree, so many beautiful structures and artifacts destroyed for a what was back then a "bully" religeon, its sad that alot of these wonderful things have been destroyed for similar purposes, makes me sick some times that we are only regretting it now

Imagine were the world would be if science had a straight line of development and not the insane suppressive time of the dark ages restricting it, and if places like The Library of Alexandria would have been intact with all the knowledge from every corner of the world collected?

oh i agree, i would pay any price just to be able to see what was in the library, imagine like you said the knowledge, the treasure, if only we could atleast locate were it was! we might still be able to find a little bit of what was destroyed even that would be an amazing find
