The Protogeometric period (1,800 – 1,100 BC) is a period when many Temples were built in Greece at the time, in honor of the ancient gods of our mythology. The Amaranth merchants who traveled to central Greece and the Aegean Islands were probably inspired by the temples they saw in the 18th century BC. built the Temple of their adorable Goddess, Amaris Artemis.
The temple was majestic (Pausanias in Attica) and was supported by 80 columns of Parisian marble (this is mentioned by Nicostratus). The sanctuary of the temple was large in size, brilliant and famous.
The archaeologist Dimitrios Stavropoulos, in 1895 states: Of all the Eritrean sanctuaries the most appreciated and modest was the Amarynthian Sanctuaries of Amarynthian Artemis by the so-called Kalumen).
The artisans who built this magnificent and magnificent ancient temple do not exist in any written text. Perhaps in the future, the excavations of Swiss archaeologists will bring to light an object named after them.
With the discovery in 2017 of the Sanctuary of the ancient temple, the perfection of the geodetic triangle of the Greek Temples was also discovered !!
The English BBC reports on: The sacred triangles of Ancient Greece and the mystery behind the location of each temple.
It is certain that part of our ancient history will be re-written, with new important elements, through the discoveries of archaeologists, in the old town of Amarinthos.
