Notes NOTES: This image (here in the form of a proof plate engraved by T. White) was reproduced in the publication 'Antiquities of Ionia', published by the Society of Dilettanti (London, 1769, vol I), chapt. II, pl V. The book was of great importance in disseminating knowledge of Greek architecture and became a source for the later Greek revival in England.
