Debatable.

Ancient Greeks thought domes to be "square".

Domes are just a bunch of Byzantinian perversion. Mooslamic crap.

"Wooden domes may also have been used in ancient Greece, over buildings such as the Tholos of Epidaurus, which is typically depicted with a conical roof. Evidence for such wooden domes over round buildings in Ancient Greece, if they existed, has not survived and the issue is much debated."

Dome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Byzantine domes predate Islam's existence by centuries.

Had you followed the exchange, particularly to the one that commenced the discussion, you might have understood the point I was trying to make.
