[Meaning] that of Demeter.[1]
Apollonion is short for the shrine of Apollo. This is the correct reading also in Thucydides.[2] Also Poseidonion, the [shrine] of Poseidon, as Athenaion, the [shrine] of Athena; and Dionysion and Demetrion and all such [shrines] that have names similar to the personal names. But *poseida/neion [is] obviously Doric.[3]
