"Artemis polymast" Top 5 Page for this destination Marseille Favorite Tip by JLBG

Marseille General: 80 reviews and 100 photos


Favorite thing: Though Marseille was founded by sailors coming from the antique Phocea, it was also strongly linked with more renown Ephese, dedicated to Artemis. The Temple of Artemis polymast (with several breasts) was in Ephese one of the seven marvels of the world. The Greek Marseille too had a temple to Artemis, the goddess for fertility.
