Description

Treasury of the Athenians

The Treasury of the Athenians is located on Iera Odos opposite the treasures of the Sirakousians and the Knidians, next to the parliament of Delphi. The small building was erected by the Athenian democracy between the late 6th century and early 5th century BC to act as a kind of vault where objects and war trophies of Athens were kept.

The building, made from parian marble, is Doric in the shape of a temple, as are most treasures. The reliefs on it reflect the feats of Hercules and Theseus, while the walls have several inscriptions testifying to the ancient festivals and customs, as well as to hymns for Apollon who helped in the study of music.
