VII. Spartan monuments of Thermopylae
According to Pausanias the shrine of Maron and Alpheius was situated on the Aphetaid road leading from the market place; along this road were a number of tombs, sanctuaries, and hero shrines. Herodotus (7.227) says that the brothers Maron and Alpheius were adjudged the bravest at Thermopylae, after the Spartan Dieneces (7.226), but he does not mention their shrine.
