“An ancient Greek or Roman temple, of rectangular construction, is terminated at its upper extremity by a triangular figure, both in front and rear, which rests upon the cornice of the entablature as a base, and has its sides formed by the cornices which terminate the roof. The whole of this triangle above the trabeation is implied in the term fastigium.” — Smith, 1873.


William Smith, A School Dictionary of Greek and Roman Antiquities (New York: Harper and Brothers, 1873) 152
