Temple of Apollo Epicurius at Bassae, Iktinos (the same guy who did designed the Parthenon, you know the one), 450-400 BCE, 6 x 15 (Apollo temples tended to be a bit longer than the standard Doric 6 x 13 for the addition of an extra room, perhaps for oracular purposes).    Also, notice the singular column out of place with the rest of the interior colonnade (between the 2 and 3), that’s supposedly where the first known Corinthian column stood.
