What Typology Is This?

After reading this article, we had to pose the question: what typology is this?

Professor Pierce responds:


Neither building looks very Roman. The Romans were engineers. They liked straight lines and simple shapes; you don’t see too many skewed trapezoids. The post building could have been a temporary basilica, but once again the lines are a little wobbly by Roman standards. Both look more like the kind of organic buildings from ancient Turkey.

Which, of course, circles us back to a Turkish archaeological find – the ancient town of Bathonea.
