Reconstruction of the Temple of Aphaia at Aegina (c. 470s) Older texts date the Temple to about 510 BCE but recent archaeological investigation published in 2008 demonstrates that the building was not built before the 470s. While earlier scholarship assumed that the pediments come from different periods with the west pediment coming from the end of the 6th century and the east pediment from the early 5th century, the revised dating suggests that both pediments were done in the 470s with the difference in style reflecting different workshops, one working in an late archaic style while the other uses an early classical style.
