The purpose of this thesis is to show that the architecture of Syria up to the end of the third century A.D. was Hellenistic. In general only dated monuments have been considered, or those whose period can be determined with certainty. With these restrictions, all the monuments of Northern Centital Syria and of the Djebel Hauran, showing details of any importance, have been considered. Baalbec, as being in process of publication, has been omitted except for occasional reference. South of the Hauran only the ruins at Arak ii-Emir have been included, with those of Djerash and Amman for reference. Monuments published by Mr. H. C. Butler since April, 1912, are not included.
