In 1965, the Austrian Archaeological Institute resumed excavations in the Artemision of Ephesus. In the course of this work, the sanctuary's altar was found and parts of the monumental temple unknown at that time were uncovered. 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. This publication documents the major features of the new restoration as well as the more significant divergences from the former plans. For example, now only two rows of columns have been restored in front of the western antae. Moreover, the analysis of the setting lines on the blocks as well as the exact alignments in the monument has provided new insight into the planning process and the sequence of temple's erection, including possible alterations while construction was underway and small errors in execution.
