    Description:

    On the highest point of the town (some way from the other temples), in the Sanctuary of Athena, is the temple of Athena. It was built in about 500 BCE, and was for some time incorrectly thought to have been dedicated to Ceres. The architecture is transitional, being partly in the Ionic mode and partly early Doric.

    Ancient city of Paestum was established by Greek colonists from Sybaris, who called it Poseidonia; taken by Lucanians 5th century BCE and by Romans 273 BCE; was famous for its rose…

    Description:

    The Sanctuary of Hera contains two temples, popularly misnamed the “Basilica” and the “Temple of Neptune”. The “Basilica”, or first Temple of Hera (ca. 550-525 BCE), is a pseudodipteral Doric building with 9 x 18 columns and measuring 24.51 x 54.27 m. Its odd number of façade columns seems to be an unusual device to make the plan more regular.

    Description:

    The second Temple of Hera probably dates from ca. 460 BCE. It is Doric order, and there are two rows of internal columns, a mainland Greek feature that became more widespread in Sicily and South Italy at this time.

    Description:

    The so-called Temple of Herakles, at the south-west edge of the city, was the earliest example of Doric monumental architecture from after 500 BCE and was perhaps founded by the tyrant Theron (reigned 488-472 BCE).

    Greek colony on the southern coast of Sicily. Believed to have been founded ca. 580 BCE from Gela, a city further down the coast, it flourished as an independent state until 406 BCE, when it was sacked by the Carthaginians. It maintained some degree of independence until the Roman…

    Description:

    Sicilian characteristics include high foundations with four steps and closely spaced colonnades with heavy columns.

    Description:

    Located in the Roman Forum near the Regia and the House of the Vestal Virgins. The temple’s most recognizable feature is its circular footprint. The extant temple used Greek architecture with Corinthian columns, marble, and a central cella. The remaining structure indicates that there were twenty Corinthian columns built on a podium fifteen metres in diameter. All temples to Vesta were round, and had entrances facing east. The House of the Vestal Virgins (Latin: Atrium Vestae) was the pla…

    Description:

    There is no mention of it in ancient literature or inscriptions. It was erroneously associated with the Temple to Minerva Medica mentioned by Cicero. In 1534 some antiquarians classed “Minerva Medica” as a bath because of its popular name, “Terme di Caluce”, but it was identified as a basilica by Biondo and his followers. It stands in what was the Licinian Gardens. The dome was created by brick ribs and concrete fill. It is now thought to be a Nymphaeum, a garden structure…
