This temple predates the Classical period by hundreds of years, having been built ca. 650 BC.

 

Note that the columns are a single piece of stone, unlike the stack of drums you see at the Acropolis and other temples. Each is about 7m high.

Think about the work to move one of these and stand it upright.

 

Detail of the above image. After 2600 years there is some erosion.
