NOTES: The Lysicrates Monument is the best preserved example of a Choregic monument and is one of the earliest examples of a Greek monument built according to the Corinthian order. In 1658 a French Capuchin monastery was founded around the monument itself (which was known as the 'Lantern of Diogenes'). The monastery was demolished during the Greek war of Independence in 1821 and the monument was subsequently restored by French architects Fran+â-ºois Boulanger and E. Loviot.
