The preliminary results of recent research are published in this article relating to the cultic area in Pontic Olbia, referred to, for the sake of convenience, as the Southern Temenos. The earliest building period falls into the first quarter of the 5th century BC. The temple was built using mud brick and stone and it had been roofed with tiles from Miletus. Most of the several dozen graffiti found in the bothroiand the cultural layer were dedicated to Aphrodite. A temenosfrom the second building period was built in the last quarter of the 5th century BCand was in existence until the end of the Classical period. The largest number of dedicatory graffiti was addressed to the main deity, Aphrodite. The temple from the Classical period has a lay-out, which is similar to the temple of Aphrodite in Histria.
