In the first place, in constructionif anything happens to them, anybody can repair the damage. In the forties nearly twenty years after Friar Giocondo's death the Vitruvian academy at Rome went about with the most ambitious plans, and one thing which may be traced back to their schemes is undoubtedly the last building planned by Palladio, Fra Giocondo's townsman, — I mean the Roman stage begun at Verona three months before the great architect died in Augustand finished by his son in In Graecorum theatris non omnia isdem rationibus sunt facienda, quod primum in ima circinatione, ut in latino trigonorum IIII, in eo quadratorum trium anguli circinationis lineam tangunt, et cuius quadrati latus est proximum scaenae praeciditque curvaturam circinationis, ea regione designatur finitio proscaenii. To guard against this, we must proceed as follows.

In the middle series on the extreme wings, the first vases are to be put with a note of the chromatic hyperbolaeon; in the second cavities at the interval of a fourth, the chromatic diezeugmenon; in the third the chromatic synhemmenon; in the fourth cavities, at the interval of a fourth, the chromatic meson; in the fifth at the interval of a fourth the chromatic hypaton; in the sixth the paramese, which has a fifth interval to the chromatic hyperbolaeon, and an interval of a fourth to the chromatic synhemmenon. The middle line is tuned in the chromatic mode. In red tufa it is copious and good, if it does not run down through the fissures and escape. The body, for example, can have no life without the flow of the breath to and fro, that is, unless an abundance of air flows in, causing dilations and contractions in regular succession.

In the Faliscan country on the Via Campana in the Campus Cornetus is a grove in which rises a spring, and there the bones of birds and of lizards and other reptiles are seen lying. When fire is kindled down beneath in alum or asphalt or sulphur, it makes the earth immediately over it very hot, and emits a glowing heat to the parts still farther above it, so that if there are any springs of sweet water found in the upper strata, they begin to boil in their fissures when they are met by this heat, and so they run out with their taste unimpaired. Among pebbles the veins found are moderate, and not to be depended upon. Etiamque auctorem habemus Lucium Mummium qui diruto theatro Corinthiorum ea aenea Romam deportavit et de manubiis ad aedem Lunae dedicavit.

There is no explanation for this anomaly. In summa vero divisione et regione cellarum in cornibus primis ad diatonon hyperbolaeon fabricata vasa sonitu ponantur, in secundis diatessaron ad diatonon diezeugmenontertiis ad diatonon synhemmenon, quartis diatessaron ad diatonon meson, quintis diatessaron ad diatonon hypaton, sextis diatessaron ad proslambanomenon, in medio ad mesen, quod ea et ad proslambanomenon diapason et ad diatonon hypaton diapente habet symphoniarum communitates.

This sign cannot show itself in a dry spot. Likewise if the water in the spring is itself limpid and clear, if there is no growth of moss or reeds where it spreads and flows, and if its bed is not polluted by filth of any sort but has a clean appearance, these signs indicate that the water is light and wholesome in the highest degree.

In the novel, Bostonian Julian West falls asleep in and wakes up in the year to find himself in an extraordinary utopia. But when theatres are built of solids, that is of rubble walling, stone or marbie which cannot resound, the use of bronze vases is to be followed.
