The Sanctuary of Artemis Brauronia

The sanctuary is located in the south-west corner of the Athenian akropolis. Traces of the internal buildings can be seen cut into the rock.

The classical sanctuary is probably dated to the 430s BC. There was no apparent temple here as the main cult site was at Brauron in eastern Attica.

In the background is the mausoleum of Gaius Julius Antiochus Philopappus.
