Das Tribunal in der Nordhalle auf dem Monte Iato: eine Neubeurteilung


Tanner, Alexandra (2021). Das Tribunal in der Nordhalle auf dem Monte Iato: eine Neubeurteilung. Antike Kunst, 64:127-141.

Abstract

The recent discovery of a series of dressed blocks led to a re-examination of the podium built into the northwest corner of the North Stoa. The remains of the small structure preserved in situ were excavated in the 1990s and interpreted as a tribunal, a later addition to the building. The newly discovered blocks now added important architectural details to the information already known. Moreover, it could be confirmed that the carved blocks, which were found in the immediate vicinity of the tribunal, had formed its crown moulding. A close examination revealed, however, that the blocks had originally belonged to a base and had been re-used for the construction of the tribunal. The rest of the structure, apart from the euthynteria, was built of only roughly dressed stone, and the re-used crown moulding had obviously been used to finish it off. Occupying a prominent position next to the agora, this is one of the few known and best preserved stone-built tribunal in existence.
