Restored by anastylosis

The intent of anastylosis is to reconstruct historical architectural monuments which have collapsed from the original material. This is done by placing components back in their original place.

The connection belongs to Architecture connections.

This has involved the reconstruction of colonnades using brick to fill missing portions of columns and importing stone slabs for paving, which goes beyond the limits of acceptable anastylosis. However, a more rigorous policy is now in operation, involving minimal intervention."
