Hellenistic Architecture in Syria

Excerpt from Hellenistic Architecture in Syria: A Dissertation Presented to the Faculty of Princeton University in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy The purpose of this thesis is to show that the architecture of Syria up to the end of the third century A.D. was Hellenistic In general only dated monuments have been considered, or those whose period can be determined with certainty. With these restrictions, all the monuments of Northern Central Syria and of the Djebel Hauran, showing details of any importance, have been considered. Baalbec, as being in process of publication, has been omitted except for occasional reference. South of the Hauran only the ruins at Arak il-Emir have been included, with those of Djerash and Amman for reference. Monuments published by Mr. H. C. Butler since April, 1912, are not included. In the spelling of names the system has been followed that is employed by Dr. Enno Littmann in the publications of the American Archaeological Expedition to Syria in 1899-1900 without the use of diacritical signs. For a clearer illustration of some details reference has been made to the photographs taken by the same expedition. Full sets of these may be secured on application to the American Archaeological Expedition to Syria, University Library, Princeton, N. J., U. S. A. I desire to take this opportunity to extend to Professors Allan Marquand and Charles Rufus Morey my grateful acknowledgment for their guidance and criticism in my studies in archaeology: but especially I acknowledge my very great indebtedness to Professor Howard Crosby Butler. It was at his suggestion that this investigation was begun, and his invaluable aid, both in material and suggestion, alone made it possible.
