Athena-Temple, Priene

Pythis, or Pythias, one of the most noted Greek architects of the later age. He cultivated the Ionic style, in which he constructed the temple of Athena at Priene. The temple of Athena Polias with a hexastyle peripterial structure was build in the western half of the city, on a high terrace north of the main street and approached by a fine stairway. The dedicatory inscription, which is in the British Museum, records that the founder was Alexander the Great. Pythias also made a great marble quadriga which surmounted the Mausoleum.
