From a background, of "Creation" to a foreground of "The Roman Empire" a flow diagram of ancient history adorns the floor of a pagan temple. The flow of time is demarcated by 59 pairs of Ionic columns each representing a century with the major battles and other events of each period; each column bears the names of “those sovereigns by which the age is chiefly distinguished”, and on the ceiling eminent statesmen, thinkers, theologians, artists and military figures of each age.
