Pantheon--page 3 (of three pages): Interior

Architect unknown. The building is associated with Hadrian but he was probably not the designer
begun 117; dedicated 126-8 C. E.

Details of the lower elevation

The second register has blind windows emphasized by their moldings. (See below.) The polychrome marbles were imported from all over the Roman Empire.

The floor

The floor design is in squares and circles of colored granites, marbles, and porphyry--a kind of vast checkerboard.
