The site at FeneosGreek Ministry of Culture

The team found the main part of the sanctuary dates to the 2nd century BC. In the main room, there is an inscribed pedestal on which two statues stood – Asclepius and Hygeia. These were by the Athenian sculptor Attalus.

Asclepius, the god of medicine, is seated and is three times the size of a normal person. His daughter, Hygeia, was standing upright beside him at twice normal size. In the centre of the hall there is a mosaic floor with geometric shapes, guilloches and meanders.
