    Summary (English)

    • The Pompeii Forum Project has finished its excavations and is now preparing their publication and the publication of the pottery.

      Work on-site was limited to one week in July 2012 so that John Dobbins and James Cooper (director and architect) could continue the examination of details in several buildings in the forum. Special attention was given to the following: the basilica and the role that its chalcidicum played in effecting the architectural transition between the basilica proper and the Porticus of Popidius; the pier wall between the forum and the Sanctuary of Apollo and the manner in which it related to the second story of the forum colonnade; documenting the evidence for the pattern of marble revetment in the Imperial Cult Building. Investigation of the new phase of the Temple of Apollo identified in 2011 continued in preparation for the publication of an article on the topic.
