Memmius Anıtı

— Der Memmiusbau —

English: The Memmius Monument was built between 50 and 30 B.C. at a particularly prominent site: it is an honorific monument for Gaius Memmius, a grandson of the Roman Dictator Sulla. The reconstruction proposes a tower-like structure with a cone-shaped roof; reliefs between the columns of the upper storey depicted the virtues of the individual honoured. At present there is no reconstruction at the site, but instead a Cubistic modern architectural collage.

Turkish: Memmius Anıtı, özellikle göze çarpan bir yerde İ.Ö. 50 ve 30 yılları arasında inşa edilmiştir: Romalı Diktatör SuIla'nın torunlarından biri olan Gaius Memmius için bir onur anıtıdır. Rekonstrüksiyonu konik damlı kule biçiminde bir üst yapı öngörür, üst katın sütunları arasındaki kabartmalarda onurlandırılan kişinin faziletleri tasvir edilmekteydi. Günümüzde yapının rekonstrüksiyonu yerine kübizmi andıran modern bir mimari kolajı mevcuttur.
