Transcript TEMPLE OF APOLLO EPICUKIITS, ON MOUNT COTYLION IN ARCADIA. " Upon the mountain Cotylion, there is a place called Bassai, with the Temple of Apollo Epicurius, the roof of which is of marble. This Temple is more admired than any in the Peloponnesus, after that at Tegea, both on account of the beauty of its stone, and the harmony of its structure. The name of Epicurius, or the Helper, was given to Apollo on account of the aid which he afforded to the inhabitants in a pestilential malady. Ictinus, who lived in the time of Pericles, and built the Parthenon, was the architect of this temple." Pausan. VIII. 41. : Vos Tempe totidem tollite laudibus, Natalemque, mares, Delon Apollinis, Insignemque pharetra Fraternaque humerum lyra. Hie bellum lacrumosum etmiseram famem Pestemque a populo— Vestra motus aget prece." Hon. Od. 1. 21. * Extol Apollo's vale for ever; The island of his birth divine ; The shoulder where his own bright quiver And brothers lyre united shine ! Extol the guardian-god who, moved By youthful prayers, hath driven afar— Far from the people that he loved— Black plague, keen famine, tearful war ! J. P. * Huic parere dati, quos fertilis Amphigeneia Planaque Messene, montanaque nutrit It-home." Stat. Theb. IV. " Beneath the banners of his high command Marched rich Amphigeneia's warrior band, With those who reaped Messene's fruitful plain, And whom Ithome* nursed amidst her mountain-rei^n." J. p. * The flat-topped mountain «een In the view.
