Palmyrene Wonder.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Bel

Quote

The Temple of Bel (Arabic: معبد بل‎), sometimes also referred to as the "Temple of Baal", was an ancient temple located in Palmyra, Syria. The temple, consecrated to the Mesopotamian god Bel, worshipped at Palmyra in triad with the lunar god Aglibol and the sun god Yarhibol, formed the center of religious life in Palmyra and was dedicated in 32 AD.[1][2] The temple would have been closed during the persecution of pagans in the late Roman Empire in a campaign against the temples of the East made by Maternus Cynegius, Praetorian Prefect of Oriens, between 25 May 385 to 19 March 388.[3] Its ruins were considered among the best preserved at Palmyra,[4] until they were further destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in August 2015.[5] The arched main entrance into the temple is still intact,[6] as well as its exterior walls and fortified gate.

PS. I am still working on 3d models of realistic Alexandria basileion architecture, including the library. Already did the pharos, needs textures. Will publish whole ensemble here once done, This is a gigantic task, also working on Greek voice recordings for soldiers.

can be nice see advance, this motivate other and our fanbase. (if you want of course)

 New for me this time was the Ekklesiasterion, a public assembly space for Greek-style elections and political meetings. The Romans covered it over when they took over, probably because they wanted to set up a space for more Roman-style systems of government. 

Quote

In a few poleis the ekklesiasterion was a separate building, but in many cases the theater was used for both performances and the meetings of ekklesia. In some cases multiple locations were used. In Athens the regular meetings of the assembly were held on the Pnyx hill and two annual meetings took place in the Theater of Dionysus. Around 300 BC all the meetings of the ekklesia were moved to the theater. The meetings of the assembly could attract large audiences: 6,000 citizens might have attended in Athens during the fifth century BC. Hansen and Fischer-Hansen argue that theaters were primarily built for performances and that their use by the ekklesia was a convenient extra function.[1]

In poleis which had a separate ekklesiasterion the building could take a variety of forms. Many consisted of steps built in the slope of a hill, similar to theaters but much smaller. Delos had a roofed building.[2] In Metapontum it was a circular structure on flat terrain with elevated steps. A walkway intersected through the center, where a podium was placed. It could accommodate 7,500 to 8,000 people in the beginning of the fifth century BC, after it was expanded. Such a circular structure was unusual for its location in Magna Graecia. A circular unroofed building with tiers of seating in Paestum, ancient Poseidonia, has also been identified as an ekklesiasterion. This is more likely a bouleuterion however, because it could only seat 500 to 600 people in a relatively large city.[

A bouleuterion (Greek: βουλευτήριον, bouleutērion), also translated as council house, assembly house, and senate house, was a building in ancient Greece which housed the council of citizens (βουλή, boulē) of a democratic city state. These representatives assembled at the bouleteurion to confer and decide about public affairs. There are several extant bouleuteria around Greece and its former colonies. It should not be confused with the Prytaneion, which housed the executive council of the assembly and often served as the boule's mess hall.

All that is left of the building is the cement “shell.” The amphitheater was originally covered in travertine veneer, marble seating, and a retractable roof of canvas sails.

 

Referred to as the Flavian Amphitheater in ancient Rome, the nickname “Colosseum” came about because of its location beside a colossus 120 ft statue of the infamous Roman Emperor Nero. PLEASE NOTE: there are many Roman amphitheaters around the Empire, there is only one Flavian Amphitheater, the Colossuem.

dont forgot making different levels of architecture

Quote

In contrast to the chaos that happened inside the amphitheater, the exterior is an expression of reason, ration, and logic. There are three levels of arcade and each level features a different column type – the Tuscan, Ionic, and the Corinthian. The column capitals rise in decoration with the rise of the building claiming a ration of weights and sturdiness. (The Tuscan was seen as the most capable of carrying heavy load.)

Carnutum Ludus.

0286-01.jpg

Quote

The ruthless, bloody and lonely lives of gladiators have been revealed in a remarkable reconstruction of one of their Austrian training grounds.

Discovered at the site of Carnuntum outside Vienna, the gladiator school is the first one to be uncovered outside the city of Rome.

Now hidden beneath a field, the school has been entirely mapped using non-invasive techniques such as aerial surveys and ground-penetrating radar.

In September 2011 aerial photographs and ground-penetrating radar led to the discovery of the typical contours of an ancient Roman gladiator school to the south of the Roman settlement, a ludus rivaling the Ludus Magnus school and covering an area of some 3,350 square yards (0.280 ha).[15] This approach of aerial photography and modern remote sensing has allowed for a detailed virtual recreation of the gladiator school.[16] The aerial photographs used in the recreation were acquired with a radio-controlled Microdrone md4-1000 quadrocopter, which captured a sufficient number of photographs to create an overlap among them. Then, using a technique called Structure from Motion (SfM), a 3D model of the school was calculated using the sharpest images.[17] The school, along with the amphitheater, was located outside of the town's walls. The school had training grounds, bathing facilities, an assembly hall and dormitories for the gladiators. The school also had a courtyard which housed a training area for gladiators. The school was attached to an open campus which was most likely used for chariot races.[

Similar to a fortress prison, they slept in 32-square-foot (3-square-metre) cells, usually in isolation, and sometimes with a roommate.

The school had heated floors for winter training, baths, infirmaries, plumbing, as well as a graveyard close by. Gladiators trained every day for public fights in an amphitheatre.

Imaging equipment showed the structures still to be excavated as having the similar building hallmarks to the Collisseum and the Ludus Magnus gladiatorial ampitheatre, both in Rome.

The details contradict the popular view of gladiators as travelling around the country for fights, as seen in the film Gladiator.

The resulting archaeological maps and plans of individual buildings, streets and Roman infrastructure allow the virtual reconstruction of the city layout and the development of ancient land - and townscapes in two and three dimensions,’ said the team from Austria, Belgium and Germany.

 spokesman for the Roemisch-Germanisches Zentralmuseum, one of the institutes involved in finding and evaluating the discovery said: 'A gladiator school was a mixture of a barracks and a prison, kind of a high-security facility.
