Fodor's Expert Review Sanctuary of the Bulls

Delos Archaeological Site/Ruins

Southeast of the Sanctuary of Apollo is the ruins of the Sanctuary of the Bulls, an extremely long and narrow structure built, it is thought, to display a trireme (an ancient boat with three banks of oars) that was dedicated to Apollo by a Hellenistic leader thankful for a naval victory. Maritime symbols were found in the decorative relief of the main halls, and the head and shoulders of a pair of bulls were part of the design of an interior entrance.
