The Temple of Artemis at Sardis was the fourth largest Ionic temple in the ancient world. Construction began around 334 BCE, soon after Alexander the Great "liberated" Sardis from the Persians. The temple was renovated under the Romans in the 2nd century CE, at which time it appears to have also served as a temple to the imperial cult.
