A wonderful close-up after first snowfall of the flawless Parian marble used in construction of the Treasury of Athenians at Delphi.
 
This now-restored 'treasury' was built to commemorate the Athenians' victory at the Battle of Marathon (Μάχη τοῦ Μαραθῶνος) in 490 BC.

Two of the most famous statues relative to ancient Greece are those of the two brothers, Kleobis (Κλεόβιδος) and Biton (Βίτωνος), which were recovered at Delphi.

Crafted by Polymedes of Argos from Parian marble, they were identified by inscriptions on the base of the statues. Even though they were created in Argos ca. 580 BC, the citizens of Argos donated the statues to the sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi, which is where they were discovered in 1893-1894.

Today they are part of the permanent exhibition at the Delphi Archaeological Museum (Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Δελφών), where they are viewed by thousands of spectators who marvel at the massive and muscular proportion of these lifelike kouroi.

The Siphnian Treasury at Delphi (ca. 530-525 BCE) which includes a depiction of the phalanx.

There are very few depictions in sculpture, vases, etc of the military formation used by the ancient Greeks, therefore, this is one that is to be cherished.

An absolutely stunning eye-level photograph of the Tholos at the sanctuary of Athena Pronoia (Ἀθηνᾶ Πρόνοια) in Delphi (Δελφοί).

It is believed to have been constructed between 380 and 360 BC and consisted of 20 Doric columns on the exterior diameter, which surrounded 10 Corinthian columns in the interior.

The magnificent ruins of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi as it began snowing.

All that remains standing of the Temple of Apollo, which is situated on the southern slopes of Mount Parnassus (Parnassos) are the stately ruins in the form of its six magnificent columns of the Doric order. Earlier incarnations of the temple were destroyed by fire, earthquake and its destruction as a result of religious zealotry.

A beautiful image of the Theater at Delphi (Δελφοί) and the surrounding countryside. When it was completed, the theater had 35 rows and could seat approximately 5,000 spectators.

Built circa 4th century BC and situated a little further up the hill from the Temple of Apollo, the audience seated at the theater was offered an amazing view of the entire sanctuary below.

An exceptional close-up photograph of the Athenian Treasury (Θησαυρός των Αθηναίων) at Delphi (Δελφοί). The marble which was used to construct this most impressive building was transported from the island of Paros (Πάρος).

The dating of the structure's construction has been debated, therefore, a range of 510-480 BC is the best available estimate.

An archival image of the Oracle of Delphi which in the later days was provided by a woman over fifty years of age. Her pronouncements during the Graeco-Persian Wars impacted not only the Battle of Thermopylae in August 480 BC, but that also of Salamis a month later.

The priestess, or the Pythia (Πυθία) of Delphi (Δελφοί) is depicted in a trance-like state while seated over a fissure in the rock.

It is through these apertures that vapors would rise from an underground stream. After breathing in these fumes, she would writhe in a frenzied state and then deliver her pronouncement.
