Tumble of a Column 1

View of a fallen column located at the back (southwest side) of the Temple of Apollo.

Note how it was made of composite parts. The central portion was "rough" to help prevent slippage, and also note the square holes to the right of the woman in the photo. These were filled with iron rods to help secure the "disks" in place on top of each other.
