Pollo Yapisi ve Domitianus Çeşmesi

English: The 8 x 6.5 m large and 6.4 m tall socle is the remainder of an honorific burial, which was erected ın the 1st half of the 1st century A.D. in memory of Gaius Sextilius Pollio by his stepson, on land provided by the city for that purpose: in this manner, the city commemorated the donor both of the Basilica at the State Agora and of an aqueduct.

To the south of the Pollio Monument the Fountain of Domitian was constructed 92/93 A.D.; its grand apse opened onto the Domitian Square. Tendril-entwined pillars carried the arches, which are presently indicated by a concrete-marble composition. A group statue depicting the adventures of Odysseus with Polyphemus stood in the niche. The former Pollio Monument was incorporated into this new construction, and the architectural screen thereby created was decorated with statues.
Turkish: Bugün yapıdan geriye kalan 8 x 6,5 rn büyüklüğünde ve 6,4 m yükseklıǧindeki kaide, İlS. 1. yüzyılın ilk yarısında Gaius Sextilius Pollio onuruna üvey oğlunun kent tarafından verilen arazide yaptırdığı bir onur anıt mezarıdır: Kent böylelikle Devlet Agorası'ndaki Bazilika'yı ve bir su kemerini bağışlayan bu kışıyı onurlandırmıştır. Pollio Yapısı'nın güneyinde I.S. 92/93 yıllarında büyük apsisi Domitıanus Meydanı'na açılan, Domitianus Çeşmesi inşa edilmiştir. Günümüzde beton ve mermerden oluşan bir kompozisyonla verilmeye çalışılan sarmaşıklı payeler çeşmenin kemerini taşımaktaydı. Nişin içinde Odysseus'un Polyphemos macerasını temsileden bir heykel grubu durmaktaydı. Daha eski olan Pollio Yapısı bu y düzenlemeyle oluşturulan mimari kulis çerçevesinde heykellerle donatılmıştır.
