Theater at Epidauros, at Epidauros, or Epidhavros, Greece, ~ -300.|
(Circa 350 B.C.)
A renowned sculptor, Polykleitos the Younger was architect of the Tholos at Epidauros. Started around 365 B. C., the Tholos exhibited elaborate detailing, especially on the Corinthian capitals of its interior columns. These columns would influence most later designs for that order.
The Theater at Epidauros designed around 360 B. C. is also attributed to Polykleitos. Typical of theaters of the fourth century B. C., it seated more than twelve thousand spectators. Much of its original form exists today.
