The Tholos of the sanctuary of Athena Pronoia is a marble building, possibly built by Theodoros of Phokaia. It is made of twenty outer Doric columns arranged along a circle (diameter 14.76) standing on a three steps pedestal and of an inner cella with 10 Corinthian columns. Three of the Doric columns have been re-erected.
