Troy- The Sanctuary

Troy- The Sanctuary
The sanctuary was, perhaps, founded as early as the first quarter of the seventh century BC. It was dug into the ruins of the lower town of Troy VI and VII and these Archaic remains seem to have included altars, walled precincts and large buildings, perhaps temples. Best preserved is the altar in the so-called Lower Sanctuary. It is not known to which god or gods the Archaic Sanctuary was dedicated, but it remained in use throughout the Hellenistic period and long into Roman Imperial times. (www.virtualtourist.com)
