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.

The team of historical building architects is going to further document the current status of the building (drawing of all architectural parts, architectural inventory with specifications, photo-documentation and architectural survey data). About 400 blocks (between 8 and 20 tons) will be removed by a crane to get access to the western part of the stairs, because the flight of stairs and its steps are to be studied in particular.
