The Peripheral Temple

Peripteral temple built in the Ionic order, it is situated on the upper terrace and was probably dedicated to the Roman Emperor (possibly Augustus), early imperial period, Stratonicea, Caria, Turkey.

A peripheral temple is a type of temple where the columns of the portico are continued around the sides and rear of the structure. Almost all Ancient Greek temples follow this plan.

Gymnasium (Below)

Stratonicea Gymnasium Koryceum. A Koryceum is a room in a palaestra for exercise with the heavy punching-bag

A palaestra was any site of an ancient Greek wrestling school. Events requiring little space, such as boxing and wrestling, took place there. Palaestrae functioned both independently and as a part of public gymnasia; a palaestra could exist without a gymnasium, but no gymnasium existed without a palaestra.
