Ancient brothel. (Worth Noting).

* Preparations for the 2004 Olympics in Greece have encountered numerous setbacks: severe construction delays, political spats, and lawsuits. Now there's a new dilemma: an ancient brothel. Excavations designated for equestrian events have uncovered what archaeologists have determined to be a treasure trove of antiquities, including a 2,500-year-old temple of the goddess Aphrodite that was used as a "love palace" in addition to its spiritual activities. The twenty digs now in process have also uncovered agricultural dwellings from the fourth century BCE and Mycenaean tombs dating back 3,600 years.
