Some temples housed the altar of the god or goddess to whom it was dedicated, but many did not.
Temples served as storage places for the treasury associated with the cult of the god in question, as the location of a statue of the god (though this was not an idol in a religious sense), and a place for devotees of the god to leave their offerings, such as dedicated statues.
The inner building of the temple, the cella, thus served mainly as a strongroom and storeroom.

The author of one of the Greek lives of Pindar says that, when Pausanias the king of the Lacedaemonians was burning Thebes, some one wrote on Pindars house, Burn not the house of Pindar the poet; and thus it alorl escaped destruction.
This incident, of which the occasion is not further defined, has been regarded as a later invention.1 Better attested, at least, is the similar clemency of Alexander the Great, when he sacked Thebes one hundred and eight years after the traditional date of Pindars death (335 n.e.).
Indeed, the point of the incident depends much on the fact that the temples and Pindars house were classed together for exemption.

This is the first (apparently) complete Independence inventory; it begins toward the bottom of side A and is preceded by a list of expenses, unlike other inventories which are either on a side separate from accounts or on a separate stone.
The absence of a list of receipts or of a year-end balance suggests that there was at least one other stele of accounts The absence of the Artemision treasure is surprising, and it may have been on another stele; the Temple of the Delians has been renamed the Temple of Apollo.
The inventory is dominated by the silver cups stored in the Hieropoion until completion of the Apollo Temple; these are described in considerable detail and weighed, in contrast to the groupings (unweighed!) of established treasures of the Temple of the Athenians (pointedly renamed the Temple of the Seven Statues) and of the Apollo Temple.

In their original Greek version, Doric columns stood on the porch of a temple without a base; their vertical shafts were fluted with parallel concave grooves; and they were topped by a smooth capital that flared from the column to meet a square abacus at the intersection with the horizontal beam ("entablature") that they carried.
Because the metopes are somewhat flexible in their proportions, the modular space between columns ("intercolumniation") can be adjusted by the architect.
