Stoa of Philippos – Delos by vasiliosgavrilis

This imposing stoa was constructed by Philippos V of Macedonia in 210 BC, in honour of Apollo. It is 72 metres long and 11 metres wide, and used to be supported by 16 Doric columns.

This dedicatory inscription, “The king of the Macedonians, Philippos, son of the King Demetrios, dadicates this to Apollo”, is still legible.
