      A monumental structure of completely original design created by Anthemius and Tralles. For many centuries, it was the largest cathedral in the world, and is also on the UNESCO World Heritage list.   Posts about Anthemius of Tralles written by Jona Lendering. It is one of the most impressive movie scenes I have ever seen: how Archimedes set Roman warships afire with a burning mirror, in the famous Italian movie Cabiria (; scene starts at 20’24). The incident, which took place during the siege of Syracuse in BCE, can be found in many history books .
