"Both sanctuaries at Sounion declined and were eventually abandoned. The date of the abandonment of religious activity at Sounion can possibly be deduced from the removal of the temple of Athena Sounias as well as the sima from the Temple of Poseidon from Sounion to Athens. If the sima was actually recycled on the Temple of Ares, then the Temple of Poseidon must have been unroofed, and therefore religious activity at Sounion had probably ended by the very beginning of the 1st century A.D. (Dinsmoor 1974). Under the rule of Augustus, the temple of Athena was dismantled and transported to Athens, to be re-erected in the Agora. Several Ionic columns and a cornice block from it were found in the southeast section of the Agora."
