In the principal Front of Diocletian's Baths at Rome, publimhed from the Drawings of Palladio by Lord Burlington, there is an Arcade, Supported by Columns, with Archivolts from Column to Column, exactly similar to those of the Peristylium of this Palace. As that Part of these Baths have been destroyed since Palladio's Time, I am obliged to quote his Authority, instead of appealing to the Original itself.
