Pagan Eye: The Temple of Isis at Dion in Greece
This is the temple of Isis at Dion, an archeological park at Mount Olympus in Greece. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been sharing pictures taken at Dion by someone who reads my blog, and this is another. Dion contains the archaeological remains of sanctuaries from the Hellenistic and Roman periods and the park shows the importance of the location in ancient times.
The temple to Isis was built there in the 2nd century BC under the instructions of Alexander the Great. Earlier temples had been devoted to Aphrodite and Artemis, the latter seen as the goddess of childbirth. Isis Lochia, an aspect of Isis who also protects women after childbirth, was particularly venerated at Dion. I’m happy to honour Isis Lochia at the moment, as my niece recently gave birth to a beautiful daughter who I saw for the first time at the weekend.
I’ll be sharing a few more pictures from Dion over the next weeks. My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting – seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to [email protected] Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
