Tholos: Almost certainly, the idea of circular buildings in Greece derived ultimately from the round store huts of the early Aegeans.  Mycenaeans built round tombs and later tholoi, as circular constructions were called, were built in stone and marble for two or three centuries before the example, the Tholos at Delphi, was erected in about 390 BC. Delphi was a great religious centre, where could be found the shrine of Apollo and the seat of the most renowned of Greek oracles, a place hallowed by association, superstition and myth, sited magnificently and dramatically high above the Gulf of Corinth.
