To the North West of the Archaic temple of Athena stand the temple-like treasuries, used to house votive offerings and goods on behalf of those that built and dedicated them. Their remains can be seen as the two rectangular foundations side by side in the picture below. The first treasury is of the Doric order, made of Parian marble on a limestone foundation. It was constructed in 480-470 BC after the Persian wars. The other is the Aeolian Massaliote Treasury, built around 530 BC, is well preserved and also made of Parian marble. The Massaliotes were colonists on the coast of Asia Minor in the Greek city Phokaia.
