This chapter explores the history of monumentalization of the landscape of Delos, with a focus on the sanctuary. The discussion is structured around the processes of funding. It examines the building activity of both public and religious buildings (to the extent that we can propose such a distinction). By exploring the different funding sources for building activity on Delos, it shows the active engagement of the Delian community, the Hellenistic kings, and other non-royal individuals in the monumentalization processes. It argues that the two important factors in shaping processes of monumentalization were insularity and the presence of a large regional sanctuary. We can see on Delos similar developments to other large regional sanctuaries, such as Samothrace.

Keywords:   regional sanctuary, Hellenistic Delos, Ptolemies, Antigonids, stoa, royal funding, Samothrace
