The Walls of this Temple are built of Freestone; and of very fine Workmanship: The Frieze is very elegant, of which I have given the exact Representation, Plate L.

The Roof is finished like an Arch on the Outside, as well as within; but the Pediment at the Well End of the Temple, which still remains entire, finishes in a Triangular Form, which was my Authority for finishing the East End, where the Portico was, in the same Manner, though that is now entirely destroyed, as is shown by the preceding Views.
