The remains of the library of Hadrian, Athens
pic 5 shows what it wouldve looked like originally.

We're making a mini-series of posts on the amazing historical sites around Athens & this is accompanied by our episodes attempting to put together the best Greek history roadtrip in just 5 days >>>
The Part 2 just went up! :

Hadrian's Library was created by Roman Emperor Hadrian in AD 132 on the north side of the Acropolis of Athens.
The building followed a typical Roman forum architectural style, having only one entrance with a propylon of Corinthian columns, a high surrounding wall with protruding niches at its long sides, an inner courtyard surrounded by columns and a decorative oblong pool in the middle.
The library was on the eastern side where rolls of papyrus "books" were kept. Adjoining halls were used as reading rooms, and the corners served as lecture halls.
The library was seriously damaged by the Herulian invasion of 267 and repaired by the prefect Herculius in AD 407412.
The site also incorporates the ruins of several Byzantine era churches - of particular note, the remains of the tetraconch church from c5 AD, visible in pics 7,8,9, 11 & 12
