In 1933, a major earthquake demolished the later structures built over this site and brought to light the ancient greek buildings underneath. The site is now under excavation and restoration.

Hippocrates is said to have studied in the shade of this tree. If so, the tree would be about 2,500 years old! Apparently the branches were formerly supported by marble columns which collapsed in the earthquake of 1933.
Not a greeat phot - I post it for its historical interest.
