Circular building of ionic order donated by Philip II after the battle of Chaeronea (338 B.C.). It consisted of an outer ionic collonade. The inside wall of the cella was divided by semi-columns of corinthian order.
It was completed by Alexander the Great, and its interior was decorated with his ancestors' busts, works of art attributed to the sculptor Leochares.
