Lion District

Recommended
Opposite the Sacred Lake, the Terrace of the Lions, a row of lions sculpted out of Naxos marble (five remain, now replaced by copies), is the most impressive monument of the Lions District of Delos, an urban centre laid out during the Hellenistic Period. The district also includes the Institution of the Poseidoniasts; the quite well-preserved Hellenistic Lake House; and the House of Tritons.
