The variety of columns still standing among the ruins of Pompeii conveys the beauty, symmetry, and order that once existed in this ancient city. These columns still proudly stand in the Basilica, built in the 2nd century BC, and used for administering justice and for business negotiations.

    I have heard that columns are one of the strongest support structures. Probably why they survived. Wonderful series Deborah!
