Example text

The urban area incorporates 16 both an upper town on the Himera Plateau running north-south and perpendicular to the sea, and a lower town on the coastal Bonfornello Plain. These were bordered to the east by the Himera River and to the west by a depression and another plateau (Tamburino Plateau) (Figs. 2). 83 Himera’s peripteral Temple of Athena Nike is located at the eastern boundary of the lower town (Figs. 2). 84 The temple was built after the Battle of Himera in 480 on the site of an artisans’ quarter dating to the first decades of the sixth century.

Similarly, the non-peripteral Temple CI in the sanctuary’s southwestern corner was converted from an oikos with a closed front to an in-antis temple with two columns in the front (Temple CII, c. 500-450) 257 (Figs. 5). 47 8. Paestum Paestum’s urban layout may have influenced the orientations of both its urban and extra-urban temples. 258 Dating to c. 530-500, Paestum’s grid is oriented along northsouth and east-west axes (Fig. 3), but may have been preceded by a plan following slightly different axes (Fig.

570) 249 further suggests that the peripteral typology was adopted at Selinus because of its aesthetic, and perhaps also theoretical, associations with the grid. By contrast, the temples in the Gaggera district are all non-peripteral. These temples are located at the western frontier beyond which lay the non-Greek world. 250 The architects might therefore have deemed it unnecessary to monumentalize the temples’ backs. At the same time, Temple M in the Gaggera district had a colonnaded front (either distyle in-antis or tetra-prostyle 251) that faced onto the urban grid.
