Altar of Chiots
Built by the people of the Aegean island of Chios in the 4th century BCE, Alter of Chiots became the main altar of the Temple of Apollo when it was rebuilt in 330 BCE for the third time.
The Altar of Chiots is located in front of the Temple of Apollo. There is a large open space between the altar and the temple. An ancient staircase leads to this altar and to the Temple of Apollo from the Sacred Way. The altar is made of black marble except for the base and cornice, which is made of white marble.
