 "It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of the air, that emanation from the old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit."

Game Info[]

  • +10% Food Growth in all cities.
  • +15% Production Production when building ranged units.

Strategy[]

The Temple of Artemis is the earliest wonder available in the game. Contrary to its description, it provides +10% total Food Food instead of excess Food Growth - for example, in a city of 5 20xPopulation5.png Population with an excess 3 Food Food, it would provide 1.3 Food Food (10% of the 13 total Food Food) rather than 0.3 Food Food (10% of the 3 Food Food for growth). Due to this, the Temple of Artemis is a great wonder for small empires, which both get a boost to 20xPopulation5.png Population growth and are able to more rapidly build ranged units to defend themselves. Furthermore, this wonder is low on the priority list of the AI, making it much more preferable to other good wonders of the same era like the Great Library and Stonehenge.

Civilopedia entry[]

The Temple of Artemis, a Greek temple first constructed in 880 BC, was dedicated to the Goddess Artemis who represented the wilderness, the hunt and the moon. Originally built in the city of Ephesus, the temple is said to have been destroyed and rebuilt no less than seven times, the victim of both natural and man-made disasters. Considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the site was rediscovered by British archaeologists in the late 1800s, and today is marked by a single column made up of excavated remnants found at the site.

Trivia[]

The Temple of Artemis is one of the earliest wonders that can be built, introduced in the Wonders of the Ancient World DLC pack.
