Table of architraves used as beams employed during the decline of art and the different forms of arches which were substituted for them

1-2. Longitudinal section and plan of the Church of Sta. Maria in trastevere; fourth century. The architrave and entablature are here regularly employed, and continued horizontally without break.

3-4. Longitudinal section and plan of the Church of Sta. Maria Maggiore in Rome, another example of the judicious employment of the architrave and entablature.

5-6. Longitudinal section and plan of the Church of St. John of the Florintines at Rome, commenced under the pontificate of Leo X, from the designs of Sansovino, and terminated by James de la Porta.

7. Part of the interior order of the Baptistery of Constantine.

8. Architrave over the columns of the Church of S. Stephano rotondo.
