Jerash – XXIX: Artemis’ Temple

Although the small dimensions of the temple, the Corinthian columns soar impressively from the hilltop site. The building had a hexastyle portico with twelve columns, of which eleven are still standing. Corinthian capitals decorating the columns are very well preserved. The temple walls had three entrances decorated with three Corinthian pilasters. The building, in its present form, dates back to 150 AD.
The temple occupies a key position in the city rebuilding undergone under Hadrian and Antoninus Pius.
The well-preserved archaeological state of the ancient Jerash permits reasonable speculation about the importance of high philosophical ideas for its urban forms.
The overall planning of the city, especially the new extension begun after Hadrian’s visit in the winter of 128/9, reveals a precise geometrical and astronomical conception. Moreover, some of the buildings erected in the Antonine period, such as the temples of Artemis and Zeus and the South Theatre, show signs of a sophisticated geometrical design.
The point where the arch of Hadrian was built fixes the starting point of the line which, running parallel to the stadium walls, crossed the Temple of Artemis in the direction of the pole star.
Thus the relative position of three of the most important buildings of the city was directly related to the constellations of the universe.
