Title: Ancient Constructions as Markers of Tectonic Deformation
Title of journal: Pure and Applied Geophysics
Series/Report no.: /162 (2005)
Publisher: Birkhauser Verlag,
Issue Date: Apr-2005
DOI: 10.1007/s00024-004-2639-6
Keywords: Earthquake, deformation.
Abstract: Many ancient structures such as temples were constructed on the basis of a very strict plan and excellent workmanship. For this reason, even their slight deformation due to various effects (ground instability, earthquake oscillations, etc.) can be identified, and it is possible to discriminate between different types of deformation due to earthquakes and those due to other natural causes or to anthropogenic effects. Two study cases are presented here: the Propylaia on the Acropolis and the temple of Hephaistos (Hephaisteion) in the Agora at Athens. In both buildings deformation was produced by earthquakes.
