Numerous fragments of building sections of two later dipteral temples were uncovered. In particular, the remains of the older Dipteros - the so-called Kroisos temple, named after the king of the Lydians who donated the monument's columns - were carefully documented and interpreted. The result has been a new graphic reconstruction of the archaic temple's ground plan and elevation.

For example, now only two rows of columns have been restored in front of the western antae.
