This volume presents a comprehensive investigation of one of the most unusual archaic Greek temples. The Temple of Athena at Assos, in modern Turkey, was built in a city that had no prior monumental tradition in either architecture or sculpture, so that the entire building constitutes an exercise in architectural invention. In this fully illustrated study, Bonna Daix Wescoat assembles for the first time a complete inventory of the architecture (documenting two phases of construction), presents newly discovered epistyle reliefs and decorated metopes, proposes a new reconstruction of the building, and situates the Temple within the formative development of monumental architecture in Archaic Greece.
