The south-east wall of the Roman settlement at Samosata. Seen here is a rare example in the region of opus reticulatum - square bricks set at an angle to create a 'net' effect - preserved due to a build-up of material against the wall over the centuries.
... This place has been flooded by the waters of the lake formed behind the Atatürk Dam.
