Abstract

The cult of Apollo Archeghetes, founded in Naxos by the oikist Teocle, was originally functional to strengthen the Ionian identity of the first colonial groups of the island, through the recall to the Apollo of Delos. Only later it was opened to all Greek people of Sicily, thus becoming the focus of the Sikeliote identity. A track of this "refunctionalization" can be seen in the news on the displacement of the Apollo Archeghetes altar outside the walls of Naxos, due perhaps to the reorganization of the urban planning made by Ieron.
