- Curator's comments
- This chapter, like several others in the third volume, was left incomplete at Stuart's death and collected from his papers by Reveley, who also had plates made up from sketches by Stuart and Revett, where they were lacking.
Referring to the bridge, Reveley adds that it had been destroyed as low as the river bed in 1785.
Stuart treats of the Ionic temple in Vol. I, ch. 2. He suggests the herdsmen are of the same family as those shown in the view of the arch of Hadrian.
