Review Questions 1. Describe two of the three column styles found in ancient Greek architecture. Greek architecture is characterized by three different styles: Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian.

These three architectural orders, while thousands of years old, still bear familiar characteristics that we see in architecture today. 2. What were Ushabti? What purpose did they have? Ushabti were small figurines that were placed in tombs to act as a substitute for the person in case he or she was called upon to do manual labor in the afterlife. 3.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
