Ploutonion found in Turkey

Discovery has a story on it here. The Ploutonion was a temple to Pluto, alias Plouton, formerly known as Hades and otherwise known as the god of the Roman and Greek Underworld. There were several sites named by Strabo at which Ploutonions could be found, but the most famously derscribed of these temples in Phrygia, known for noxious deadly vapors has never been identified until now.
