Temple of Hera II

This is one of the other temples in Poseidonia (Paestum), slightly younger than Hera I (Picture here, foreground, ca 550 BC) and the temple of Athena posted a little while ago. This last temple (Hera II) dates from about 470-460 BC and you can easily spot the developments - the columns are "better" proportioned and more classical in style just as the building in general.The change is as easily spotted on plans of the temples. (taken from the internet, the size does not resemble the real difference between them)
