Athens. Greece View of four standing columns which stand on the original inner peristyled courtyard atrium of Roman Emperor Hadrian’s lavish Library built in 131 AD in Athens. Occupying the courtyard from 425 AD was a monumental Tetraconch Christian church which was then replaced by a 7th century church of which standing columns survive. The library complex consisted of a vast library, a large courtyard with a garden and central pool, mosaics floors, numerous rooms and a facade adorned with Corinthian columns.
