The Sanctuary of the Egyptian Gods is an archaeological site of utmost importance for Attica; it opened to visitors in 2001 and excavations have continued systematically to date. A complex with numerous buildings dating back to 150-160 AD, it is believed to have been ordered by Herodes Atticus. Besides the main sanctuary, a luxurious bath building (valaneio) has been excavated, referring to imperial-style thermae in miniature in which the necessary cleansings took place before worship rituals. An Architectural Survey of the Archaeological Site was prepared.
