It is situated in the boundaries of Paleopolis ancient city and the Monastery of Agioi Theodoroi. It’s a Doric order, limestone structure with 8 pillars in the façade and 17 on its sides, characterized as one of the greatest temples of ancient Corfu. The reason is mostly about the pediment which adorned the western side of the temple. It is the oldest surviving stone pediment and has gigantic proportions (11,5m. x 4m.). Today it is exhibited in the Archaeological Museum of Paleopolis - Mon Repos Estate.
The pediment depicts the representation of goddess Artemis on a mythical creature, named Gorgon. Gorgon was a Medusa with snakes as hair and wings at her back. She had the ability to turn humans to stone when they looked at her. The scene consists of Gorgon in the center while her face is turned to the spectator being surrounded by her children, Chryssaor and Pegasus, two lion- panthers and two scenes of Titans’ battle.
