The Mausoleum of Karystos
The building was erected and used as the tomb of a prominent Roman official (procurator) who is depicted in the medallion of the pediment. Perhaps he was responsible for the supervision of the Roman quarries to the north of Karystos. After the first investigation of the site (excavation in 1908), the building was interpreted as a temple dedicated to a deity, possibly Apollo, Artemis of Hephaestos.
