From West Kennet Avenue (September 2016)


"On the island is a magnificent sacred precinct of Apollo and a notable temple adorned with many votive offerings and spherical in shape.   They say how the Moon viewed from this island appears to be but a little distance from the earth .... the god visits the island every nineteen years, the period in which the return of the stars to the same place in the heavens is accomplished"
  Diodorus Siculus, II
