Finally, the location of each structure is relative to how they compare and contrast. The Parthenon in Greece and The Pantheon in Italy can be compared and contrasted in terms of design, materials used, function, and location. The Parthenon was built by the architects Itkinos and Kallikrates, as a temple generally of the Doric order. However, it also incorporates Ionic elements, such as the Ionic opisthinaos, a rear room of the temple, and the sculptural enrichment which was more recognizable in the Ionic order. The demensions are a base of 30.9m by 69.5m.
Politically, Rome was a republic. This is very akin to a democracy. In the beginning the Patricians held all the spots in the Senate. The Senate is the branch of the government that was considered the legislative law-making body. They also had two consuls that were chosen from the Senate, who were also Patricians.
The amphitheater has an outside circumference of 1729 feet and is 161 feet tall. Its base is 42 feet thick. It consists of travertine, brick, and concrete. The Corinthian columns, made of concrete and stone, helped make up the different stories of the stadium. There were over 80 vaults and arches throughout it.
The ancient Roman Colosseum is perhaps the most astonishing wonder in the history of Architecture known to mankind. The Colosseum served to provide a place of entertainment for the people of Rome and dole out harsh punishments portrayed through shows ending with death to menaces of society. The basis for the idea behind the Colosseum began with the Roman Emperor Vespasian who overtook the Emperor Nero to gain control of the Roman Empire. Much like Nero and other emperors during his time, Vespasian developed a reputation for conveying harsh punishment upon the citizens that jeopardized law and order in the empire. Therefore in 69 A.D. he ordered master craftsman to employ gangs of slaves to construct a facility that would satisfy the entertainment needs of society.

The huge amphitheater was built on the site of an artificial lake, part of Nero's huge park in the center of Rome which also included the Golden House Domus Aurea and the nearby Colossus statue. This giant statue of Nero also gave the building its current name. The rare building is huge, measuring 188m by 156m and the height of more than 48 meter or 159 ft. The Coliseum could hold up to 55,000 people who could enter the building through the 80 different entrances. Above the ground are four storeys, the upper storey that have seating for lower classes and women.
Aeneas's not-so-nice side reveals itself again in Book 10 and Book 12, when he kills various guys (including, finally, Turnus), who are surrendering and begging him for mercy. OK, so you were really angry that Turnus killed Pallas, but still, don't you remember your father telling you to "spare the conquered"? Is that really the example you want to be setting for your son Ascanius and the countless generations of Romans who will come after him? That was the non-technical sense in which Aeneas is a tool. Interestingly enough, the technical sense makes the non-technical sense seem not as bad.
All these bodies were chosen by the Napoleon-appointed senate. They were however chosen from a list of candidates elected by the voters. The fact that those elections were often stage-managed to ensure the choosing of candidates loyal to Napoleon enabled him to impose his dictatorship over France. Even the possession of that executive power was not enough to satisfy his boundless ambitions for personal power as he wasted
The wall protecting spectators that surrounds the arena stands at 15 feet high. This particular Coliseum is designed using the principle of the Arch, as well as many other ancient Roman structures. There are 80 entrance arches that are along the perimeter of the internal and external walls. Several more entrance arches also run to the center creating internal corridors and tunnels that run around
