Photographer's Note

Aphrodisias - Turkiye.

The monumental gateway to the Sanctuary of Aphrodite was built in ca. A.D. 200. It led from Aphrodisias's main north-south street into a large forecourt in front of the Temple. A complete scientific reconstruction, or anastylosis, of the gateway was completed in 1991. This reconstruction was made possible by the extraordinary preservation of the structure - 85% of its original marble blocks survive. The gateway was then painstakingly reassembled, incorporating steel reinforcing bars in the columns and other structural elements, and adding new cast-concrete elements where necessary.
