During the recent excavations below the Skopadian temple for Athena Alea at Tegea two fragments of building models were found, both in disturbed layers. It is suggested that they date to the early archaic period, presenting parallels with models from Perachora and the Argive Heraion as well as the Heraion on Samos. The models are suggested to be an expression of oikos identity of the elite families during the transition from the Late Geometric period.
