Sabratha. Libya. View of a inscribed statue base and restored arch at the west end entrance to Curia or Council chamber on the northern side of the forum. The Curia was a meeting place of the city’s magistrates and senators and was originally built in the first century AD and then rebuilt in the fourth century after being destroyed by the 365 AD earthquake. A feature of it is the remains of the columns of cipollino and grey granite that once adorned the rectangular portico.
