Temple of Athena Lindia

The Temple of Athena Lindia was an ancient Greek temple dedicated to the goddess Athene Lindia in the city of Lindos on the island of Rhodes (now Rhodes) in Greece.

Its ruins are located on the Acropolis of Lindos, or castle hill in the present village of LĂ­ndos.

The site of the Temple of Athena Lindia is an ancient cult site that has been in use since prehistoric times. The place was in cult use possibly as early as pre-Greek Minoan times and later Mycenaean times. Pre-Greek origin is also evident in the name Lindia, which is not of Greek origin. Lindia was originally a separate goddess who was later united with the pan-Greek Athena. Athena's second epithet on the site was Polias, the patroness of the city.
