polytheist extractions

Strabo, Geography 17.555

“Before the enclosure where Apis is kept is a vestibule, in which also the mother of the sacred bull is fed and into this vestibule Apis is sometimes introduced, in order to be shown to strangers. After being brought out for a little while he is again taken back. At other times he is only seen through a window. The temple of Apis is close to that of Hephaistos which last is remarkable for its architectural beauty, its extent, and the richness of its decoration.” – Strabo, Geography 17.555
