Notes on video lecture:
Temple of Portunus in Rome and Temple of Hercules in Cori
Notes taken by Edward Tanguay on January 20, 2014 (go to class or lectures)
Choose from these words to fill the blanks below:
tufa, pilasters, concrete, metopes, medieval, Tivoli, green, painted, porch, Round, striations, Etruscan, Ionic, 120BC
Temple of Portunus
dates between            and 80BC
near the Tiber river
which "looks nasty as it usually does, it's very            and not the sort of place you would want to take a swim in"
next to Temple of Portunus is round temple called the "           Temple by the Tiber" for obvious reasons
the plan of Temple of Portunus
more like an                  temple with Greek features
has steps in the front for a facade
deep            with free standing columns
columns go all the way around (Greek), but they are not free standing (attached to the wall)
stone (Greek), not wood
Travertine stone from             
walls are made of          but pasted over with stucco, thus looked like a Greek temple
columns are in            order
spiral volutes
you don't see the Etruscans using this
                 was used inside the podium, can sustain great weight
ruble, liquid mortar and a dash of volcanic dust
has ionic frieze
was repurposed
probably one reason it is still in such good condition today
the Temple of Hercules
in Cori
                 hill town
Romans found the best location in Cori for their temple, at the very peak of the hill
early 1st century BC
same Etruscan plan
single stair case
deep porch with free standing columns
has                    or flat columns
Greek Doric order
triglyphs and               
columns are fluted (have                      in them), but not fluted at the bottom
people are more likely to lean up against the columns which break off the flutes
