| The foundations of a Roman building lay to the west of the temple
and the supposed House of the Pythia to the south, the Offering
of the Messenians of Naupaktos to the southeast, and the monument
of Aemilius Paullus below the the temple ramp.
A retaining wall, named the Ischegaon, protects the Sacred
Way as well as the temple. In part of the terrace, the Offering of
Polyzalos was found, buried by catastrophe. The famous bronze
Charioteer was rescued from these debris (Charioteer).
To the west was an exedra with a bronze group of statues, crafted
by Lysippos and Leochares c. 320 BC, commemorating Krateros,
who saved Alexander the Great's life while lion hunting.
