Doric Temple of Juno, Agrigento

The Doric temple attributed to Juno Lacinia but dating from c. 450 BCE, Agrigento, Sicily. The columns are a good example of entasis - the thickening at the base and centre of columns to give the optical illusion of being perfectly perpendicular when seen from a distance.
