The so-called Serapis Temple is one of the best preserved monuments of the Roman Imperial Period (27 BC to 284 AD). The tremendous dimensions of the numerous monolithic architectural parts are impressive. Most of them are still lying in situ (in place) in front of the temple, as they have collapsed due to an earthquake.

In the field of archaeology the 3D laser scanner technology became a popular tool for high-resolution 3D documentation of archaeological excavations. 3D laser scanners are able to survey superficial structures and three-dimensional subjects without the need to touch the objects under investigation. The collected data on the shape and possibly appearance (i.e. color) of a real-world object or environment are used to construct digital, three-dimensional models.
