    2. Overview of the Pompeii Forum Project

    3. Why study the Pompeian Forum?

    4. Forum Location

    5. Buildings of the Pompeii Forum

    6. Early Theories about the Pompeii Forum • Archaic Primordial town- “the Altstadt” • The Tufa Period • Mau (1903), Maiuri (1942), Zanker (1976), Kockel (2008), Pesando (2006), Coarelli (2006)

    7. Primordial Phase

    8. Samnite Phase

    9. Sullan Phase • Political upheaval following Social War (90-88BC) • Pompeii becomes logical choice for Sulla’s new administrative center • Transformation into a more distinctly Roman town

    10. Temple of Jupiter

    11. Transition Period

    12. The Basilica Comitium

    13. Porticus of Popidius

    14. Porticus of Popidius • Possible reconstruction in front of The Eumachia Building and The Sanctuary of Augustus

    15. Porticus of Popidius’ Reconstruction

    16. Large blocks cleanly cut • Smaller stones, less neatly placed than in the original construction

    17. Augustan Phase

    18. Sanctuary of Apollo • Paul Arthur (1980) – 6th century Greek Terracotta • Large ditch east of building with votive deposits from the second century BC marks original foundation and signals reduction of boundaries for the Porticus • Dobbins (1997)- examination of the intersection of the northwestern corner of sanctuary with the existing street

    19. Sanctuary of Apollo • Inscription from approx. 10 BC found in the Sanctuary • Council granted this structure to authority to construct a wall that block the light from going into adjacent houses

    20. Streets altered from gradual, systematic development of the Forum

    21. The Eumachia Building

    22. Sanctuary of Augustus

    23. Porticus in front of the Sanctuary of Augustus?

    24. Post Earthquake Reconstruction Phase
