  • The temple of Artemis was a temple located near Corinth and dedicated to Artemis, the Olympian goddess of the Hunt as well the Harvest, the Moon and a patron to the Amazons. Many people came to this temple to make sacrifices. Velasca, intoxicated with her newfound godhood, desecrated and destroyed it in retribution for Artemis's alleged abandonment of the Amazons.
  • The first sanctuary (temenos) antedated the Ionic immigration by many years, and dates to the Bronze Age. Callimachus, in his Hymn to Artemis, attributed it to the Amazons. In the 7th century BCE, the old temple was destroyed by a flood. Its reconstruction began around 550 BCE, under the Cretan architect Chersiphron and his son Metagenes, at the expense of Croesus of Lydia: the project took 10 years to complete, only to be destroyed in an act of arson by Herostratus. It was later rebuilt. Antipater of Sidon, who compiled the list of the Seven Wonders, describes the finished temple:
