July 2014 – near Korinthos, Greece

 This month we travel to the country of Greece.
The scene is the temple of Apollo. It was built around the 7 c. B.C
and made by Trophonios and Agamedes. The temple is made out of Doric columns
made of porous stone and limestone. According to Greek Myth, the Temple of Delphi
was where the God Apollo slew the vicious Python.
Afterwards, the temple became dedicated to the God,
and Pythia, named for the Python that Apollo killed.
The temple went through an earthquake in 373 B.C.
and was rebuilt for the third time in 330 B.C.
