Macellum of Pozzuoli
by Gunnar Ries, Hamburg, Germany
Macellum or Serapeum, roman temple dedicated to the god Serapis, Pozzuoli, Italy. A band of borings or Gastrochaenolites left by marine Lithophaga bivalve molluscs on three standing marble columns indicated that these columns had remained upright over centuries while the site sank below sea level, then re-emerged.
