Abstract

This article is the second report on the excavation and survey project at the Peloponnesian sanctuary of Zeus on Mt. Lykaion, Arcadia. It focuses on the lower sanctuary, where we investigated the stoa, seats, fountain house, administrative building, corridor, hippodrome, stadium, and bath facility. the earliest remains date to the 7th century B.C. A major building program during the second quarter of the 4th century B.C. was followed by a period of continued activity of various kinds through the 1st century B.C. A large amount of moldmade Hellenistic pottery recovered in the corridor indicates intensive use during the 3rd-1st centuries B.C. Parts of the lower sanctuary were also in use during the Early, Middle, and Late byzantine periods.
