1 - The columns in the temple of Vesta (round, tholos-type temple) have Corinthian Capitals. The present-day columns of the temple of Vesta are actually from a later restoration, possibly Septimius Severus/Julia Domna. However, the first Corinthian Capitals were from the Domitianic restoration well after the period of the very late Republic. During the time of the HBO Rome series, the columns of the temple of Vesta most likely would have been Ionic.(Kraig Hausmann)
