5 Votive Monuments along Sacred Way in Delphi, Greece

There was plenty to admire along the Sacred Way. The route was flanked by elaborate votive monuments. Most celebrated military achievements. An example is this Spartan Colonnade. The tribute was built in 403 BC to commemorate Spartan’s naval defeat of Athens in the Battle of Aegospotami. It once displayed 37 statues. Other noteworthy monuments on the Sacred Way included the Bull of the Corcyreans (580 BC), a large bronze Trojan Horse (413 BC) and statues of ten Argos kings (369 BC). Unfortunately, all that remains today are the pedestals and bases of some of these monuments.
