VIII.1.3 Pompeii. January 2010. Looking east to entrance from north-west corner. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer. According to Carroll, “Looking east towards view of the temple as it was being enlarged after 62AD. The upright core is part of the mid-first century BC temple.
The still intact courses of large basalt blocks were laid into a construction trench surrounding the earliest building. The scattered basalt blocks in the courtyard are remnants of building work”.
