Parthenon roof tiles at South from SE
There were two main types of roofs which were characteristic of Greek architecture: Laconian and Corinthian. Laconian roofs were made up of large, concave pan tiles and convex cover tiles. Corinthian roofs were made with flat pan tiles and pitched cover tiles. When determining the roof type, all roofs consisting of curved tiles were classified as Laconian, while roofs with flat tiles were Corinthian.
