You are the Temple of Artemis!
The Temple of Artemis boasted over 100 marble columns, each more than 50 ft in height. The structure covered an area several times larger than the Acropolis.
It was built around 600 BC, but was burned down about 550 AD, before being rebuilt into a larger and more magnificent version. It was destroyed again in 336 BC by an arsonist. It was again rebuilt, even bigger and better than before, and with the exception of the timber-supported roof, the new Temple of Artemis was made almost entirely of marble. It was decorated with sculptures and artworks created by leading artists.
Invading Goths severely damaged it in 262 AD. It wasn't rebuilt again.
