New excavation reveals Ancient Greek healing temple

A team of archaeologists, working on the acropolis at the foothills of Feneos have excavated the ruis of an ancient Greek healing temple, which includes several huge statues at an altitude of 750m.  The asclepion (a healing temple sacred to the god Asclepius) was first discovered in 1958 and between 2007 and 2014, however in September the Corinth Archaeological Service revealed more findings.  The team found the main part of the sanctuary dates to the 2nd century BC as announced by the Greek Culture Ministry. In the main room, there is an inscribed pedestal on which two statues stood – Asclepius and Hygeia sculpted by Attalus.
