“The Temple of Olympian Zeus was actually built by the Romans in an attempt to gain favor with the Greeks they had just taken over. This was their attempt to show an appreciation for the Greeks and their culture and history. The Romans had such a respect for what the Greeks had achieved that they let them worship their own gods such as Zeus. This temple was built in the Roman Corinthian order of architecture and has suffered a lot over time. One of the fallen columns fell due to an earthquake not too long ago.”
