-The Greek quarry, whether subterranean or not, differed
little from the quarries of Egypt. When subterranean
and large, various devices, such as piers and curved ceil-
ings, were employed to prevent the superincumbent mass
from falling in. Directions for quarrying were given by
Heron of Alexandria. 2 Like the Egyptians, the Greeks
made deep cuttings and inserted wedges. The wedges
were probably of wood their simultaneous expansion,

when wet, making the rift in the rock. In the quarries at
Selinous and Syracuse may be seen evidence of the cross
cuttings for quadrated blocks and the broader, circular
cutting for the drums of columns.
There were many implements used by the stone-cutter
in common with the carpenter, but he had also implements
peculiarly his own. His hammer and his chisels had to be
adapted for heavier work. He had his pick or pointer,
his smooth-edged chisel, and his toothed chisels, some

adapted for rough work and others for finer work also a ;

graving tool. For deep cutting he required a drill, and
for the final polish he used the file and Egyptian sand or
Naxian corundum. In fine jointing it was necessary
that the surfaces of the joints should be as nearly as possi-
ble absolutely plane surfaces. A
washing with nitre and
water (eKvirpwcns} made the surfaces absolutely clean.

The transportation of stone blocks from the quarry to
the building was not always an easy matter. Wagons and
sledges sufficed for smaller blocks, but special devices are
said to have been invented by Chersiphron for rolling
columns and by Metagenes for revolving epistyles to the
Temple of Artemis at Ephesos. Similar devices are
thought by Koldewey to have been used at Selinous.
Columns, or drums of columns, were dragged like a modern
roller, being held to a frame by means of small cylinders,
which served as axles. In transporting epistyles the
framework was provided with wheels. 1 To elevate the
largest blocks to their planes were
places, inclined

employed by Metagenes Ephesos but
at ordinarily, cranes

acd derricks sufficed. The derricks consisted of one or
more beams set on end and provided with ropes, pulle}^s
and a windlass. A derrick with two beams and one with
four beams were used during the second century restora-
tions of theTemple of Apollo near Miletos. The derricks
were stayed by means of ropes and carried pulleys. The
pulleys contained usually three wheels, but not infrequently
five or more. Windlasses of various forms were used, of
wiiich one of the most interesting, figured on a relief
from Capua, 2 is in the form of a treadmill.
Various devices were employed in preparing the blocks,
by means of the derricks.
so that they could be easily lifted
Sometimes projecting tenons were left (<wra, ay/caves), so
that the blocks could be easily caught by a sling (Fig. 9).
Sometimes, as at Akragas, grooves were cut on the outside
of the blocks into which the lifting ropes might be fitted 3 ;

sometimes a channel was cut into the heart of the block,

as in the Sikyonian Treasury at Olympia ; sometimes, as
in the same Treasury at Olympia, they were lifted by
means of a gripping implement; 2 and finally, at Akra-
gas and Selinous, Olympia and Athens, the lewis was fre-
quently employed.

The stone-mason's art involved cutting the blocks
of stone (epyao-ia rov \i6ov), setting them (crwflecr*?),
and finally the various operations involved
in their

dressing. The difference between rough and finished
masonry consists chiefly in the way in which individual
units are prepared before being set in place. We may

accordingly distinguish masonry as primitive or roughly
cut, polygonal, tetragonal and sphenoidal. Primitive or
rough masonry makes use of unhewn or roughly hewn
stones (\i6oi XoyaSe?), as distinguished from close-fitting


masonry (\l6oi GVVVQ^QI). Primitive masonry occurs in
the so-called Cyclopean walls of Tiryns. In this construc-
tion the blocks were sometimes very large and again quite
small. In many cases no bonding agent was used to hold
the blocks in place. Sometimes small stories and clay
were employed to fill
up the rough joints (Fig. 10).
When unstratified rock was used, regularity in stone
setting is not to be expected, but when stratified or

roughly hewn blocks were employed, they were naturally
set in more or less horizontal courses. Besides city walls,
retaining walls and the substructures of ordinary houses,
when of stone, were usually of primitive or roughly cut
masonry. The retaining wall of the Temple of Apollo at
Delphi was made of blocks whose, joints were roughly cut

surfaces, the outlines of which are more frequently curvi-
linear than polyg-
nai ( Fi s- n

Polygonal masonry (Xtflo? TroXvycovos) is found in all periods
and over a wide range of the Greek world. At Mycenae,
at Samikon (Fig. 12) and elsewhere, it occurs associ-
ated with more primitive masonry in the city walls and


towers ;
at Rhamnous, polygonal masonry is used for
th<j cella walls of the Temple of Themis; at Knidos it

tion of which is constructed of the most regular quad-
rangular units. The Greeks of southern Italy and
Sicily avoided but it was much used in Etruria, espe-

cially in and about Latium. 2 As opposed to the curvilinear
t} pe of masonry which we have observed at Delphi, the
joints in this class of masonry are plane surfaces which
cut each other at an angle, so that the faces of the blocks
form more or less regular polygons. From the point of view

of construction, walls of polygonal masonry were in most
cases very substantial. The joints meeting each other at
varying angles left no continuous lines, horizontal or
vertical, in which the walls could be easily fractured.
From the point of view of economy, this type of masonry
was limited chiefly to districts provided with igneous
rocks. Even herethe form of the blocks did not lend
itself torapid work.
Tetragonal or quadrangular masonry (Xt'0o? TeTpdyco-
z>o9) was the type which finally came to be employed
for heavy as well as light walls. It was not a product of
we find it already in pre-Mycenaean

buildings at Knossos, Phaistos and Hagia Triada in Crete,

was the natural type
It for a people who were

provided with an abundant supply of stratified rock. One
consequence of the use of such rock and of the tetragonal
unit was masonry in horizontal courses (8o/xot). When
the blocks -were uniformly of the same height, the succes-
sive courses were superposed with great regularity. This
kind of masonry was called the equal-coursed (Xt#o?
tVo'So^o?) Equal-cotfrsed masonry is usually

thought of as implying not only blocks of uniform height,
but also of uniform breadth, and set so as to break joints.
But other varieties of this type of masonry were em-
ployed by the Greeks. Sometimes the blocks were of
uniform height, but not of uniform length, or the joints were
some vertical' and some inclined, as in the case of the walls
of Messene or in the exterior wall of the theatre at Delos.
Even polygonal masonry might be constructed of blocks
of equal height, as, in fact, seems to have been the case
with some tornbs at Sardes 2 and elsewhere.
A further variety, known as pseudisodomum (X<$o?
Tjref&o-o'So/Lto?), usually described as composed of blocks

set in regular courses of at least two different heights.
Thus, the walls at Isionda in Pamphylia and the Agrippa
Monument at Athens (Fig. 14) are composed with great
regularity of courses, alternately high and low. The
western and eastern wall of the Great Altar at Pergamon
exhibit respectively two and three high courses set be-
tween the low ones. 4 Four high courses between two

Kolde- wey has shown that both in Sicily and southern Italy there l was a constant tendency in the archaic period to widen the intercolumniation.

It maybe further noticed that not merely the linear ratio of column diameter to intercolumniation. Those of friable stone were at first more closely set than was necessary. and araiostyle (a/oatoo-TuXo?) when more than three diameters. and in the classic period a taste for more closely spaced columns. . For example. Colonnades of wood permitted of wider interco- lumniation than those of stone. Koldewey und Puchstein. Vitruvius. the colonnades of the mar- ket-place were much more widely spaced than those of the temples. 3. correspondingly heavy columns should be employed. Here also various considerations deter- mined whether the intercolumniations should be relatively wide or narrow. Vitruvius 2 preserves to us the names of several ratios of this sort derived from late Greek writers. systyle (<n*rn/Xo?) when two diameters. eustyle (e&TTfXo?) when they reached two and a quarter diameters. Judged by this standard the Parthenon inter- columniations would be too narrow to be classed even as pyknostyle. In other words the relation of mass to void was considered. Experience proved that.132 GREEK ARCHITECTURE Another characteristic ratio is that of the column to the intercolumriiation. The ratio was called pyknostyle (Tru/c^oWuXo?) when the intercolumniations measured one and one-half times the lower diameter of the column. diastyle (Stao-ruXo?) when three diameters. 1 2 230. but the ratio of intercolumniation to column height was an im- portant factor in Greek proportions.

Diminution is a quality in shafts which shows considerable variation within the same period nevertheless. 1 give the ratios of some Athenian columns. a strong diminution . Ionic shafts are even more cylindrical through- out their entire history. taken from Penrose. In considering the forms of shafts we noticed that the conical shaft of the early period was abandoned for a more cylindrical shaft in the later period. . In the Ionic style the entasis was more delicate than in the Doric. It is more difficult to generalize in the matter of the entasis of shafts. The following table. which show a diminution of only one-fifth of the lower diameter. especially in Sicily and southern Italy. would be more normal for an early period than the almost cylindrical shafts such as those at Nemea. In the Doric style the entasis seems to be strong in early examples. -L. Their diminutions vary from one-sixth to one-eighth of the lower diameters. High columns demanded a stronger entasis than low ones. like that of the columns at Corinth. Later the more nearly cylindrical shaft has correspond- ingly less entasis.of the lower diameter.136 GREEK ARCHITECTURE columns was chiefly a change in the proportions of the shaft and may be expressed in essentially the same ratios.

But Greek channellings were not always circular.. . in both cases assuming them to be of circular section. A Hellenistic relief in the Naples Museum 1 and a sarcophagus from Asia Minor 2 may be cited as examples of spiral channellings. 8 Vitruvius. 4 Koldewey and Puchstein. 2 Strzygowski. as. 14. 5 Cockerell. 3. and of in the columns of the Temple of Apollo at Phigaleia 5 they take the form of a three-centred arch.

and a double row of acanthus leaves at the base. In the
Tholos at Epidauros (Fig. 258) the angular volutes were
almost completely detached from the central bell of the
capital, the central spirals made smaller, the central flower
raised until it

touched the
abacus, and more
space allotted to
the acanthus
decoration, which
in this case con-
sisted of a row
of alternately
high and low
leaves. The cap-

this case the cen-
tral bellwas hidden by elaborate spiral, acanthus, and floral
decoration, resembling applied metal work. In the half
capitals in the Philippeion at Olympia (Fig. 260) the
central spirals arid flower were given up, the acanthus
leaves were multiplied, and for the first time appear cornu-

copia-like, channelled cauliculi from which the volutes
spring. In the normal Corinthian capital, exemplified in
the Olympieion at Athens (Fig. 261), the central spirals and
flower reappear the flower being raised to the summit of
abacus and both rows of the acanthus leaves are strongly
curled at the top.


Capitals whose principal moulding shows the form of
a cyma recta were decorated in various ways. That of
the Votive Column of Aischines at Athens (Fig. 262) was
decorated with the Doric leaf ornament, and with a similar
series of pendent leaves on the moulding above it. The

the capital of another votive column at Athens (Fig. 263)
the double curvature of the cyma recta would appear
to have influenced the decoration, of which the

influence was not felt in every case. Near the Temple of
Artemis at Magnesia a capital of this form was found


decorated with a single series of upright palmettes. The
larger capitals of this form, like those of the Leonidaion
at Olympia, and those of the gymnasium at Pergamon,

appear to have been undecorated.
The abacus of the Greek capital was often left undeco-
rated. This severe simplicity was all but universal in
Doric architecture
^^~ 7* of the archaic and
classic periods.
Occasionally, how-
ever, some simple
ornament was
given to the face
of the abacus, as,
for example, in an
archaic capital at

capitals of the Enneastylos at Paestum, where the abacus
blocks were surrounded by a small fillet moulding; or
in the capitals of votive stelae at Athens (Fig. 265),
where painted maeanders were not unusual in Doric as
well as Ionic capitals. In capitals of the Ionic style the
abacus was ornamented by the modification of its profile
through the addition of mouldings, or by carved or painted
ornament. The variations in profile we have already con-

When an anta became part of the composition of a wall with a row of columns. and still later for the lateral columns. 307). a complex anta was produced. It remains here to add a few remarks concerning complex antae. though regularly placed with reference to the cella. In earlier chapters we have noted various modifications of the structure.


which represented the termination of both wall and colon-
nade. The shaft of such an anta was, in part, a flat pi-
laster and, in part, an engaged column. This duplex form
well expressed its double function. Then arose the prob-
lem of forming appropriate bases and capitals for complex
antae. At the entrance to the
stadion at Olympia a complex
shaft has an unbroken base and
a single capital (Fig. 308). A
second type may be seen in the
peribolos of the temple at Kan-
go var (Fig. 309), where each
portion of the anta capital has its
own capital, and the base mould-
ings are broken about the rectan-
gular and semicircular portions
of the complex shaft in a way
which foreshadows the bases of
Gothic piers.
A second problem in the com-
position of antae consisted in the
establishment of their planes in

elevation. Penrose has ob-

4. DOORS AND WINDOWS. Having described the
structure, forms, proportions, and decoration of doors
and windows, little remains to
be said concerning their com-
position in Greek
Balance in composition was con-
sidered of great importance. The
entrance to a Greek temple was
in the central axis of the build-

ing windows, as in the Pina-

kotheke of the Propylaia, 1 or in
the east wall of the Erech-
theion, equally balanced
on either side of a central door-
way. When a series of open-

in size and style to the interior requirements and to
the exterior character of the building. The addition of
porches introduced a new element into doorway compo-
sition. It necessitated their being related to the col-
umns in front of them. Many experiments were made

laid down the
rule that the top of the cornice of the doorway should be
on a level with the top of the capitals of the pronaos

columns. The cornice of the doorway in the North

the capitals of the columns the Temple of Herakles

at Cori and later buildings often follow the rule given

by Vitruvius.
5. PIERS AND COLUMNS. Piers supporting arches
and forming arcades are rare, but not unknown, in Greek
architecture. In the large courtyard of the pre-Hellenic
palace at Phaistos large bases occur in alternation with
small ones, suggesting an arcade with alternating piers

and columns. A sustaining wall composed in part of
piers and connecting arches, on the south side of the
Acropolis at Athens (Fig. 310), dates from the time of
Eumenes II. In general, however, the arcade did not
develope into an important architectural feature before
the Romans undertook the transformation of Greek archi-
The column and the colonnade presented many prob-
lems in architectural composition. The most elementary
of these was to establish the proper relation of column
to column. In the earliest colonnades considerable ir-
regularity prevailed in the archaic period an effort

was made to equalize the intercolumniations, but there
were many exceptions to this rule. Some early temple
colonnades accentuated the short and long sides by a
difference in the intercolumniations. Sometimes the
columns of the short sides were more closely set, as
in Temple D, Selinous, and in the Enneastylos at Pae-
stum sometimes they were more widely spaced, as in

Temple C, Selinous. In fully developed Doric temples,
like the Temple of Zeus at Olympia, greater harmony

prevailed. The spacing of the columns on the long and
the short sides was practically the same. The inter-

columniation opposite the doorway of a temple was, to
the earlier architects, a matter of indifference in later ;

days it was wider than the rest and, according to Vitru-
in the frieze an extra triglyph. Another
and far-reaching cause of irregularity arose, in

temples, from the desire to have the colonnade
nize with the entablature, so that the position of the tri-

glyphs would form a regular cadence with the axes

i 4.
Vitruvius, IV, 3,


the columns and the centres of the intercolumniations.
This could have been easily done, had the Greeks been
content, with Vitruvius, to leave metopes or halves of
metopes at the ends of the frieze. But they preferred to
have the frieze end with triglyphs. To secure this they
admitted various irregularities in the frieze. For ex-
ample, in the Temple of Zeus at Akragas much broader

metopes are found near the extremities than elsewhere
in the frieze, and in the Parthenon 2 the sizes of the tri-

glyphs and the metopes were quite irregular. The spac-
ing of the colonnades was also modified in that the ter-
minal columns were brought closer together. Sometimes
this contraction was confined to the terminal intercolum-
niations, which made a strong contrast with the rest of
the colonnade ; but in fully developed Doric temples it

was extended, as in the Parthenon and in the Temple of
Concordia at Akragas, to the next to the last intercolum-
niations. The many
modifications required in harmoniz-
ing the Doric colonnade and its entablature led Roman
architects to reject this order as mendosum et disconveniens.*

They preferred the Ionic and Corinthian, in which there
was no such problem.
Another problem in the composition of colonnades con-
cerns the emphasis or lack of emphasis to be placed upon
the corners of a peristyle. In the case of the Temple
of Apollo at Corinth (Fig. 311) and in the Temple
of Zeus at Olympia, 5 we find, not merely the corner
column, but all the columns of the fagade, of greater
diameter than those of the long sides. Here the most

important colonnade received the emphasis. In the
Theseion and the Parthenon greater harmony prevailed
in the sizes of front and lateral columns. It was not

the entire fagade, but merely the angle columns, that
were given superior thick-
ness. In the Theseion a
very delicate emphasis is
laid on the corner column.
It is of the same diam-

eter, but has less diminu-
tion than the other columns
of the peristyle. 1 Vitru-
vius 2 maintains that cor-
ner columns should be one-
fiftieth larger in diameter
than the rest. His ar-

the agora the corners were emphasized by larger col-

connecting links of aesthetic rather than structural con-
further problem arose in the case of double colon-
nades. In archaic temples when a double row of col-
umns preceded the temple cella, the inner columns were
sometimes heavier than those of the outer peristyle, as
Temple C at Selinous.
in In the classic period, however,

FIG. 312. Corner pier from Magnesia.

the inner row was composed of perceptibly slenderer
columns, as in the Parthenon. This practice became
the rule in later days. Vitruvius 3 tells us exactly how
much slenderer the inner row should be, and that the
apparent slenderness should be increased by additional
The composition of the colonnade and walls with re-

spect to elevation furnished a new problem in the case
of the peripteral temple. Were the outer face of the
cella wall vertical and the column shafts cylindrical, the

colonnade would harmonize best with the cella walls if
it too were vertically set. But when the outer face of
the wall sloped inward, and the columns diminished in
diameter toward the top, a colonnade posed on a vertical
axis would form a porch wider at the top than at the
base, and thus apparently, lack stability. According to
Garbett, the colonnade in front of the British Museum,
being thus posed, appears in danger of falling outward.

To correct this fault was a practical necessity. It is
also held by some writers that when a line of tapering
columns are set on a vertical axis, they present a fan-
like appearance. Choisy assures us that this is the
case with the Pantheon and the Palais du Corps Legis-
latif in Paris. It may also be remarked that, in the case
of convex stylobates like those of the Parthenon, if an
attempt were made to pose each column perpendicularly
to the divergence would actually
stylobate, a fanlike
occur. Hence columns were harmonized with the walls
by being given a similar inward inclination, and the fan-
like divergence was corrected chiefly by means of the
counter inclination of the angle columns. In peristyles
an angle column belonged to two colonnades, each of
which demanded of it a different counter inclination.
This double demand was met by inclining the angle col-
umn in the direction of the diagonal of the temple base.
Sometimes only the corner columns supplied the counter
inclination in other cases the columns adjoining the

angle columns also shared in it. An inclination of the
colonnade toward the walls is found in the best Athenian
buildings, as the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Theseion,
and even in the Erechtheion 3 but in other fine Doric

Vitruvius 3 directs that the steps in front of a temple be uneven. Of these there are several varieties. Non-peripteral porches are those which do not make the entire circuit of the temple cella. though it may have been a very ancient one. These may be distributed into two general classes: non-peripteral and peripteral porches. of little value in es- tablishing types.

rectangular, the banks of seats were arranged like those of
a theatre, in concentric curves. In front of the Council
House was an open court, entered through an imposing gate-
way and surrounded by covered porches. Buildings of a
similar character have been found at Termessos 1 and else-
where. At Megalopo-

In such cases the seats
sloped from two sides of the building. Of this type
was probably the Phokikon, near Daulis, 4 in which there
were long colonnades and, from the columns, banks of seats
rising to each wall. The Curia at Pompeii 5 appears to
be a variant of this type, with decorative columns at the
side walls instead of colonnades. In this case movable
seats were probably used.
Governmental buildings were frequently arranged in

type of Prytaneion was the circular building (0o\o?, ovaa?).
Such was the Tholos at Athens, 3 and the Common Hearth
of the Arcadians at Mantineia. 4 This type was preferred
by the Romans for their temples of Vesta.
For various other officials were erected separate buildings,
such as the Thesmotheteion, the Strategion, and the Epho-
reion. Law courts 6
(Si/caaTrjpia') were held sometimes in
the open, sometimes in closed buildings. There seems to
have been no typical form of building for this function of
government, although there were certain features which
characterized these halls of justice, such as the benches on
which the judges sat, the raised tribunals for the advo-
cates, and the bar or railing which separated the court
from the public.
Greek trade was both wholesale and retail. The whole-
sale merchants sold their goods by samples. The locality
where such goods were exhibited was called the Deigma.
These merchants were often importers, and had their store-
houses at the seaports. Remains of some of these may be
seen at Delos. For the use of these traders were also
erected colonnades, such as those at the Peiraieus. 6
Retail merchants and those who sold their own products

sought the agora, or market-place (a70/oa), which inmost

Greek cities was the heart of the town. The earliest type
of market-place was an open space, where each merchant
could expose his wares from a booth, or tent, and where
shade was provided by means of trees. It had no well-
defined form, and its functions were manifold. Temples
and altars were erected in it; here also was likely to be
found a group of governmental buildings. The agora was
often peopled with statues. But the religious, political,
and commercial interests in growing cities could not long
continue to occupy the same ground. Hence they were
separated, although the separation was not always com-
In the classic and Hellenistic periods the agora became
an architectural feature in Greek cities. The open space
was more or less surrounded by porticoes, into which
opened store-rooms. The agora at Priene had covered

walks on three sides; those at Magnesia (Fig. 359),
Knidos, and at Aphrodisias had them on all four sides.

The form of the agora in Hellenistic cities corresponded

with the general disposition of the streets, and was usually
square or rectangular. Agoras with curved boundaries,
however, existed in Asia Minor, and a circular one at

Those of the archaic period were less
regular in form. Pausanias 6 describes that of Olympia
as built in "the Older Style," with separate colonnades,
and streets between them. In the later or Ionian type
the colonnades were united so as to form an enclosure
without streets.

nade supported the ridge-beam of a gable roof, which
covered a single-storied porch.
A third type stoa was the three-aisled, which resulted
