Studies in Hellenistic architecture

Frederick E. Winter (Author)
"Studies in Hellenistic Architecture is a detailed analysis of the development of the major building-types of the Hellenistic age - the mid-fourth century BC to the time of the Roman conquest of the Eastern Mediterranean. In this work, Frederick E. Winter reveals how the architects of the period went beyond anything achieved by their Classical Greek predecessors, and how their work prepared the way for many of Rome's later architectural achievements." "Geographically, the monuments included in this volume extend from Spain to Afghanistan and from Provence to North Africa. Winter discusses the architectural achievements of the various regional styles of the Eastern Mediterranean, and takes a detailed look at Hellenistic developments west of the Adriatic."--Jacket
