Sima from the the Zeus temple at Olympia

I'm not quite sure why, but I've bene increasingly interested in simas lately. This is one in stone from the temple of Zeus at Olympia. Compare it to this one (terracotta, Delfi) and this one (terracotta, Corinth) to get a feeling of how it might have looked in colour. You can also, with some caution, apply this logic to the rest of the temple.
