Philippeon

Philippeon in Altis of Olympia in the Peloponnese was a memorial consisting of statues of the family of King Philip II of Macedonia, including Philip II himself, his son Alexander the Great, his wife Olympias, his father Amyntas III and mother Eurydice I. The sculptures were made by the Athenian sculptor Leokares to celebrate Philip's victory at the Battle of Khaironeia in 338 BCE. This was the only structure inside Altis dedicated to humans, not gods.
