Stratos Temple of Zeus

The Stratos temple dedicated to Zeus Stratios stands on the top of a fortified hill at the northwest end of the city, the ancient capital of the Acarnanians. It was hexastyle, built in the Doric order, with Corinthian columns in the cell, an unusual combination of architectural styles. The construction of the temple began in 321 BCE, but it was never finished, probably due to fights against the Aetolians. Excavations began at the beginning of the 20th Century and are still in progress. The temple measured 32 Meters by 17 Meters which had 11 by 6 Columns.
