The Garden of Cyrus: Quincunx

Quincunx

The text is from Quintillian's Institutio Oratoria VIII.3.ix: "Quid [illo] quincunce speciosius, qui, in quamcumque partem spectaveris, rectus est?"; roughly, "What is more beautiful than the quincunx, that, from whatever direction you regard it, presents straight lines?"
