Stoa of Attalos in the ancient Athenian Agora in modern-day Athens, Greece.
We had a discussion on the reconstruction of ancient ruins in order to experience them in their former glory. My notes on the topic read:
“Original ruins vs reconstruction
-value of space vs value of building
Agora-change of occupation; cultural change Greek>Roman>Modern Greek
-What is the most important artifact?
-digging through stratigraphy of historical layers
-reconstruct Greek ruins? Byzantine?
