Photographer's Note

The Corinthian style columns of the Temple of Artemis in Jerash, originally a Greek city state but taken over by the Romans in the 1st century AD. It was known as Gerasa. Jerash recovered from the Persian invasion of 614 AD, but a big earthquake in 749 AD destroyed large parts of the city and buried much of it in landslides. It declined rapidly in importance after that and was not rediscovered until 1806. More info here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerash
