Supporting evidence about what is generally known of antiquity

The different parts of an Ancient Greek temple are presented here with texts, illustrations and footnotes. Ground plans are shown of the temple of Apollo in Aitolia (620BC), of the temple of Athena Aphaia in Aegina (beginning of 5th century BC) and of the temple of Hephaestus in Athens (443-444BC), of the Parthenon in Athens (447-438BC), of the temple of Apollo in Basses (430BC) and of the temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens (174BC-131AD). There are illustrations of the Doric, Ionian and Corinthian styles, as well as drawings of ancient ceramics. The differences between ancient Greek and Roman theatre are pointed out and there are illustrations of Roman baths. All this is completed by sixteen page poster showing what is generally known about ancient and medieval times.
