In the Ancient Agora dominates the temple of Hephaestus. Also known as “Theseion” due to its previously erroneous attribution of the temple to Theseus, from which the wider area took its name. Dedicated to Hephaestus and Athena Ergane, it was constructed just after the middle of the 5th century BC and is the best surviving example of Doric temple in Greece.
