Main Article Content

Sebastián Vargas Vázquez


The study of the material that we present in this article is part of the new research currently in progress on the Traianeum of Italica (Santiponce, Seville, Spain). The material under study corresponds to an assemblage of marble roof imbrices, the characteristics of which provide a new understanding of the build- ing, of its aesthetics and its statics. This, in turn, has led us to reflect on the nature of this architectural complex and, particularly, on its foundations, considering the enormous weight of the roof that we now know covered the Traianeum of Italica.
