View looking east along the front (north) side of the granary at Andriace.  The building is composed of eight long rectangular rooms and the doors that are visible open into these areas. 

The building was built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian (A.D. 117–138) and still stands to its original height.  The building measures 213 x 105 ft. [65 x 32 m] and is built out of local limestone.

On the right side of the image notice the well–dressed stones with the smooth margins (around the edges) and the rougher, slightly projecting, bosses.  Just above the door a long Latin inscription is carved into the long smooth surface.

At the far, east, end of the building a room for the manager of the granary is visible.
