“THE CIRCLE IS OFTEN USED IN ORNAMENTATION AS A FUNDAMENTAL FORM. NO GOOD RESULT
IS PRODUCED [AS A RULE] BY DIVIDING IT MERELY BY RADII OR OTHER STRAIGHT LINES; AND IT IS THEREFORE USUALLY DIVIDED BY MEANS OF CURVED LINES OR OF A COMBINATION OF ARCS AND STRAIGHT LINES. BY DESCRIBING CIRCLES TO CUT EACH OTHER: MOTIVES MAY BE OBTAINED, AS SHOWN BY FIGURES 3 AND 7, THE LATTER OF WHICH IS THE BASIS OF A ROMAN MOSAIC PAVEMENT FOUND IN POMPEII.” - FRANZ SALES MEYERS, HANDBOOK OF ORNAMENT [1897]
