Artemis who was the sister of Apollo was adored here like in Ephesus. In relief on the stage Artemis represented like the Artemis of Ephesus.

The cave where noxious gases emanate under the temple is consecrated to Pluto. Once upon a time priests went in accompanied by animals and came out of it (having breathed the fresh air which existed in intervals) unaffected.
