Model of a temple

Description
This is a model of a building with a square doorway, windows, and the outlines of blocks of stone or clay-tiled walls. Its size suggests it was used for religion, and it might have been a copy of a famous temple at the time it was made in ancient Greece. It belonged to Lieutenant Colonel LAD Montague who collected over 800 classical archaeological objects, which he bequeathed to the museum on his death.
