    the temple of Aphaia has both: the eastern pediment shows the proir war, not described by Homer, the war of Hercules and the statues are build in early classical style. The western pediment shows the war between Priam and Agamemnon (Helena, Paris, Achilles, Hector, Ajax and so on), and indeed its statues are build in archaic style.
    My temple corresponds more to the eastern pediment and to classical style, e.g. you can see Hercules as a archer. But since the temple is not exactly the temple of Aphaia and was build by Carthaginians it can have some deviations.

    Exactly! Thank you

    I would just like to add a part from Adrian Goldsworthy book The Fall of Carthage: "...the Carthaginian began to accept certain Greek deities. The worship of Demeter and Kore (Persephone) was formally introduced to Carthage in 396, an act of propitiation after the destruction of one of their temples in Sicily had been followed by a devastating plague amongst the Punic army there"

    Can't go around angering the gods and stuff. Wise move, Carthage.

    Cool! Thanks for the detailed explanation about the site and the different eras of construction and production of art.

    Exactly! Thank you
    No problem. To be honest, my list was rather weak. It was more than just the Romans, Etruscans, and Carthaginians who were influenced by Greek art and architecture...it was also the Thracians, Illyrians, Persians, and others who adopted facets of it or found it to be trendy enough to emulate. Even various Celtic peoples incorporated it to varying degrees depending on their locale (the Galatians of Anatolia obviously gradually becoming assimilated into the predominant Hellenistic culture).

    Wow, those Lugians look fantastic! I really like the swords in particular, I can practically hear them slicing through the air.

    My those Lugian Swordsmen look great. The Lugians will no longwr be a generic faction of mostly spearmen.

    Are these just late variants(meaning their early variants will be available at the start) or will the Lugians only get these swordsmen after the reforms?

    There are some earlier swordsman units, but they're not ready yet.
    It began on seven hills - a historical house-ruled Romani AAR
    Heirs to Lysimachos - a semi-historical Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR
    Philetairos' Gift - a second attempt at an Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR

    Great job on the Lugian swordsman!

    It's noticable how different these Lugian Swordsmen are when compared to the rest of the early Lugian roster(includes the Bastarnae units). These units don't have highly pale skin or they only have black hair.

    I'm guessing the entire Lugian unit roster is getting a new graphical make-over by the next update?

    The Sweboz and the Lugiones are getting some pretty cool new units
