WOULD YOU SAY THAT AGAIN, PLEASE?
“The temple of Demeter is at the southern extreme of the town’s sacred zone. In fact, it was devoted to Athena. This was verified by the recent unearthing of statuettes which bear the archaic Roman inscription ‘Minerva.'” (Z. Herbert, Barbarian in the Garden 1985 p. 24; Manchester, Carcanet Press Ltd.).
