Temple of Trajan
Turkey, Pergamon, Sept. 2013

Pergamon was a small settlement during the Archaic Period. One of the few buildings that is being restored at present, is the Temple of Trajan. The Roman Emperor Trajan (98-117) started it but after his death Emperor Hadrian (117-138) finished the temple in Corinthian order and it was placed upon a terrace with dimensions of 68 m × 58 m. Attempts have been continuing by the German archaeologists since 1976 to erect this temple which has 6 x 9 columns and a peripteros plan (one row of columns around the temple). It is completely marble: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergama
