Antropoid sarcophagi | Magnesia Artemis Leucophryene

Magnesia Artemis Leucophryene

In part of the museum with mainly sarcophagi there is a large room with remains of the temple of Magnesia Artemis Leucophryene (The white eyebrowed Artemis). Built on the ruins of an earlier temple this one was erected in the late 3rd-early 2nd century BC in an Ionian style. The museum shows the friezes of this temple in their original order, though arranged on occasion in two rows, because of lack of space. I did not take a picture of all of the parts, some seemed to be too weathered to be of interest.

I add pictures that may, or may not, be from the same temple, I'll use a later visit to sort that out.
