Terms for final version of the paper Pantheon
This temple honored 7 Roman gods.
Completed project should include this terminology:
a) the Pantheon's facade, including portico, columns, pediment, rotunda and oculus.
2) the Patheon's interior, including much more color, arches and alcoves,
and coffered rectangular ceiling panels (which once probably contained medallions called rosettes).
3) Also include the Pax Romana ("Roman peace," a period of stability and prosperity enabled by the control of the Roman armies and government around the Mediterranean). It was a period that lasted from maybe 50 BC to 125 AD.
