Corinthian style

Isaac Kremer/ February 28, 2021/ / 0 comments

May have enjoyed particular favor in the Seleucid area, but florid decoration, in which relatively naturalistic vegetal forms played an important role, occurs widely in the Hellenistic world. Good examples can be seen in the massive new temple of Apollo at Didyma, begun about 300 B.C. and still incomplete 700 years later; a beautiful frieze of foliate scrolls and heraldic pairs of griffins which ran round the interior court is dated to the first half of the second century B.C. Foliate decoration was especially popular in Pergamum, from where it was carried to Rome during the late second and first centuries (Boardman, 1986). Also see Corinthian order.
