The Eucleia sanctuary

Directly beneath the monumental complex of the Aigai palace and theatre, the sanctuary of Eucleia (eu + cleos, good fame, posthumous fame) was founded in the 4th century BC.

The sanctuary complex comprises the foundations of two temples, one altar, one arcade (stoa) and one peripteral building. The archaeological excavations here unearthed royal dedications to the goddess, the most typical one being the dedication by the mother of Phillip II, Eurydice.
