Ptolemais. Cyrenaica. Libya. View of restored columns at the Greek Agora / marketplace and which was later used as forum by the Romans. The two tall ionic columns in the rear of image belonged to a temple which may have been dedicated to the Capitoline Triad (Jupiter, Juni and Minerva). Below the Agora are reservoirs / cisterns that were originally built by the Greeks to store water that arrived via an aqueduct from mountain springs 25 kilometres away.
