Philippus' Portico
This imposing stoa was constructed by Philippos V of Macedonia in 210 BC, in honour of Apollo. It is 72 metres long and 11 metres wide, and used to be supported by 16 Doric columns.

This dedicatory inscription, "The king of the Macedonians, Philippos, son of the King Demetrios, dadicates this to Apollo", is still legible.

Philippos was ruler of the Cyclades until the defeat at the battle of Kynoskephalai in 197BC.
