Temple E at Selinus in Sicily is a greek temple of the doric order. It is found on the hill to the east of the city’s acropolis. Temple E is also known as the Temple of Hera because an inscription found on a votive stela indicates that it was dedicated to Hera; however, some scholars argue that it must have been dedicated to Aphrodite on the basis of structural parallels. It was built towards the middle of the sixth century BC on top of the foundations of a more ancient building. It is the best conserved of the temples of Selinus but its present appearance is the result of anastylosis (reconstruction using original material) performed - controversially - in 1959.
Temple F at Selinus in Sicily is a Greek temple of the doric order. It was probably dedicated to Dionysus or Athena and is one of the three temples on the East Hill. The temple’s dating is very uncertain, but it probably belongs to the middle of the sixth century BC
