Nemea

One of four panhellenic sanctuaries, Nemea was also the site of the first of the twelve labors of Herakles when the legendary hero fought and killed a massive lion. As well as a stadium, bath, and many surrounding sanctuary buildings, the site is dominated by an impressive 4th century Temple of Zeus, sitting on top of earlier buildings dating back to the Archaic period. Only three columns now remain standing. This series is no longer published by ASCSA. Other volumes have been published by University of California Press.
