Description

Here, on a terrace on the west side of Pergamum, are the foundation remains of the great Altar of Zeus. The steps of the platform on which the altar stood can be seen in the centre of the picture.
In the 19th century, German excavators recovered many scattered remains of this altar and reconstructed it in the Pergamum Museum in Berlin.
