Modern Description: Partial foundations of a small E-looking apsidal temple with hypostyle prodomos (8th-6th century BC) were found WSW of Galataki village in 1957. Near it, reusing a Mycenaean grave, was a pit with ca. 1000 small ceramic vases and early archaic figurines of a female divinity (now in Ancient Corinth museum). This was a chance find by schoolchildren, which resulted in excavations conducted by Verdelis. Nothing is visible at the site, apart from some rock-cut tombs atop the rise just N of the modern road. The temple is supposed to be 50 m N of them. The area is thought to be ancient Solygeia, a town of the Korinthia. Archaeology magazine 1962
