Some observations on the original form of the Rotunda in Thessaloniki

G. Velenis


In this article the author makes use of certain evidence from the Rotunda of St. George, Thessaloniki, in order to propose a more accurate restoration of the original form of the building in the years of the Tetrarchy. The evidence presented includes the recesses on either side of the large, rectangular niches, whose existence implies a post and lintel interior façade with two columns in front of each niche. A more complete restoration of the interior, as well as a portico at the entrance, is further proposed, based on the evidence of comparative structures.
