Opposite from the base
of the Plataeans tripod we see the big Chians altar
(8,60 x 5 and height of 4m.) of the temple where
sacrifices were made during the celebrations. As we
informed from the inscription the altar was built at 5th
cent B.C with the money of Chians who got in return the
right to be allowed to ask first for the oracle without
waiting in line.
