"The curvature of the stylobate meant that the convex flooring of the temple allowed for the structure to appear more symmetrical than it actually was, and the Temple of Apollo at Corinth is probably the earliest example of this addition to temple building; the Parthenon in Athens is another famous example of this innovation. However, whilst it is unknown when the temple was actually built, most scholarship tends to be place it somewhere in the mid-6th century. Moreover, it is also clear that the temple which was built at this time was not architecturally identical to the one which stands today, with Bookidis noting how the roof had most likely undergone several remodellings."
