The ruins of Kourion are located adjacent to the south coast of Cyprus a short distance west of Limassol. The temple of Apollo Hylates was first excavated systematically by George McFadden and the University of Pennsylvania in 1935. Two main architectural phases are now known to exist, the earliest belonging to the latest Classical or Early Hellenistic period, and the overlying second phase to the 1 st century A. D. As can be seen from the partial reconstruction, the temple was a magnifcent construction occupying the highest and most commanding position at the end of the sacred street of the sanctuary. The four main chapters of the volume are devoted to a general outline of the city of Kourion and the temple, followed by a history of archaeological investigation of the temple including excavation in 1983 prior to the reconstruction work. The finds from this excavation are discussed by Ieronymidou. The architecture of the temple in its different phases forms the subject of the third chapter, and the fourth is devoted to the restoration.
Preface by Vassos Karageorghis. Index of geographical and proper names.
