The three remaining columns of the pronoas (front porch) of the Temple of Zeus, Nemea. The temple was erected 330-320 BCE. Other disarticulated columns are currently being restored. The Temple of Zeus was constructed during the last third of the 4th century B.C. as part of an extensive building program throughout the sanctuary. Its predecessor, the Early Temple, had been constructed early in the 6th century B.C. and destroyed more than a century later. The builders of the 4th Century temple dismantled and reused blocks belonging to the earlier structure when setting the foundations for the later building.
