    Summary (English)

    • The Pompeii Forum Project has finished its excavations and is now preparing their publication. Work on-site was limited to one week in July 2011 so that John Dobbins, James Cooper and Ethan Gruber (respectively, director, architect, computer specialist) could examine details of several buildings in the forum and plan for 3D models.

      During this period evidence was observed for a previously unrecognized phase of the Temple of Apollo. This phase includes the current cella, but its podium was smaller than the podium now visible in the sanctuary. Measurements and photographs were taken and the study of this new evidence has begun. An aspect of the study of the sanctuary of Apollo has been the creation of a new actual-state plan that accurately shows the precise relationship between the pier wall and the columns of the sanctuary’s east colonnade. This relationship is evident on site, but no previously published plan has documented the relationship accurately. The north-south width of the piers equals the intercolumniations of the columns while the inter-pier spaces equal the cumulative dimension of two columns plus their intercolumniation. This precision suggests that the colonnade of the sanctuary and the pier wall belong to the same phase in the evolution of the sanctuary.
