Jaršskjįlfti ķ Grikklandi 2008

Jaršskjįlfti ķ Grikklandi 2008, Aženuborg.

Ég var į feršalagi ķ Grikklandi, 6. janśar 2008 žegar jaršskjįlfti uppį Mw6.2 aš stęrš reiš yfir landiš. Ekki varš neitt tjón ķ žessum jaršskjįlfta, hvorki į fólki né eignum.

Ég var staddur į hóteli ķ mišborg Aženu uppi į 6 hęš žegar skjįlftinn reiš yfir og var undarlegt aš upplifa "alvöru" jaršskjįlfta og finna hvernig žetta stóra hśs sveiflašist til. Žetta fékk mig til aš hugleiša aš žaš vęri meš ólķkindum aš allra žęr gömlu byggingar sem ég hafši veriš aš skoša vikurnar į undan hefšu nįš aš standa sumar hverjar ķ žśsundi įra. Žennan dag stóš einmitt til aš skoša nokkrar af žekktustu byggingum Aženu borgar eins og The Tower of the Winds in Plaka, Temple of Hephaestus, Church of the Holy Apostles, Stoa of Attalos, Hill of the Nymphs and the Pnyx, Valley of the Muses, Prison of Socrates, Theatre of Dionysus, Propylaea Acropolis, Parthenon Acropolis, Erechtheum Acropolis og Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Sum af žessum svęšum voru lokuš vegna jaršrskjįlftans, en žrįtt fyrir žaš nįšum viš aš skoša alla žessa staši įsamt fleiri fallegum stöšum sem Ažena hefur upp į aš bjóša.

Fyrsti stašurinn sem aš viš skošušum var The Tower of the Winds in Plaka, Greece. Žar er klukka ķ turni sem gengur fyrir vatni og aš einhverju leitir fyrir vind lķka. (smelliš į mynd til aš sjį fleiri myndir)

The Tower of the Winds in Plaka, Greece, The Tower of the Winds, also called horologion (timepiece), is an octagonal Pentelic marble clocktower on the Roman agora in Athens. The structure features a combination of sundials, a water clock and a wind vane. It was supposedly built by Andronicus of Cyrrhus around 50 BC, but according to other sources might have been constructed in the 2nd century BC before the rest of the forum.

The 12 m tall structure has a diameter of about 8 m and was topped in antiquity by a weathervane-like Triton that indicated the wind direction. Below the frieze depicting the eight wind deities — Boreas (N), Kaikias (NE), Eurus (E), Apeliotes (SE), Notus (S), Livas (SW), Zephyrus (W), and Skiron (NW) — there are eight sundials.[2] In its interior, there was a water clock (or clepsydra), driven by water coming down from the Acropolis. Recent research has shown that the considerable height of the tower was motivated by the intention to place the sundials and the wind-vane at a visible height on the Agora, making it effectively an early example of a clocktower. According to the testimony of Vitruvius and Varro, Andronicus of Cyrrhus designed the structure.

Nęst var skošaš Temple of Hephaestus sem er ein best varšveitta byggingin į svęšinu frį žessum tķma (smelliš į mynd til aš sjį fleiri myndir)

The Temple of Hephaestus and Athena Ergane, αĻŒς του ΗφαĪÆστου και της Ī‘θηνĪ¬ς ΕργĪ¬νης, also known as the Hephaisteion, φαιστεĪÆον, Theseion, ΘησεĪÆον, is the best preserved ancient Greek temple. It is a Doric order peripteral temple, located at the north-west side of the Agora of Athens, on top of the Agoraios Kolonos (Ī‘γοραιος) hill. From the 7th century until 1834, it served as the Greek Orthodox church of St. George Akamates (to view gallery: click image) (C)2009 Kjartan P. Siguršsson

Nęst var gömul kirkja skošuš sem ber nafniš Church of the Holy Apostles (smelliš į mynd til aš sjį fleiri myndir)

The Church of the Holy Apostles, also known as Holy Apostles of Solaki, Ī†γιοι Ī‘πĻŒστολοι ΣολĪ¬κη, is located in the Ancient Agora of Athens, Greece, and can be dated to around the late 10th century. Solakis may be the family name of those who sponsored a later renovation of the church, or from "Solaki" for the densely populated area around the church in the 19th century.

The church is particularly significant as the only monument in the Agora, other than the Temple of Hephaestus, to survive intact since its foundation, and for its architecture: it was the first significant church of the middle Byzantine period in Athens, and marks the beginning of the so-called "Athenian type", successfully combining the simple four-pier with the cross-in-square forms. The church was built partly over a 2nd century nymphaion, and was restored to its original form between 1954 and 1957.

Rétt hjį kirkjunni er svo 2ja hęša bygging Stoa of Attalos, Athens, Greece. (smelliš į mynd til aš sjį fleiri myndir)

The Stoa of Attalos, Attalus, is recognised as one of the most impressive stoa in the Athenian Agora. It was built by and named after King Attalos II of Pergamon who ruled between 159 BC and 138 BC. (to view gallery: click image) (C)2009 Kjartan P. Siguršsson

Typical of the Hellenistic age, the stoa was more elaborate and larger than the earlier buildings of ancient Athens. The stoa's dimensions are 115 by 20 metres wide and it is made of Pentelic marble and limestone. The building skillfully makes use of different architectural orders. The Doric order was used for the exterior colonnade on the ground floor with Ionic for the interior colonnade. This combination had been used in stoas since the Classical period and was by Hellenistic times quite common. On the first floor of the building, the exterior colonnade was Ionic and the interior Pergamene. Each story had two aisles and twenty-one rooms lining the western wall. The rooms of both stories were lighted and vented through doorways and small windows located on the back wall. There were stairways leading up to the second story at each end of the stoa. The building is similar in its basic design to the Stoa that Attalos' brother, and predecessor as king, Eumenes II had erected on the south slope of the Acropolis next to the theatre of Dionysus. The main difference is that Attalos' stoa had a row of rooms at the rear on the ground floor that have been interpretted as shops

Annars tók ég um 3000 myndir ķ Grikklandi įramótin 2007-2008 ķ umręddri ferš og mun ég reyna aš birta eitthvaš af žessum myndum hér į blogginu žegar tękifęri gefst til. Enski textinn meš myndunum er frį wikipedia žar sem hęgt er aš fręšast nįnar um žessi fyrirbęri sem myndirnar sżna.

Viš į Ķslandi gerum okkur ekki alveg grein fyrir žessum hörmungum. Žó svo aš viš höfum oft upplifaš jaršskjįlfta, aš žį er eyšileggingarmįtturinn ekki eins mikill į Ķslandi eins og ķ žessum löndum viš Mišjaršarhafiš. Bergiš er svo hart į žessum stöšum aš žegar žaš brotnar og fer į staš, aš žį verša afleišingarnar margfalt verri en viš žekkjum. Jaršvegurinn og bergiš į Ķslandi gefur t.d. mun meira eftir. Einnig eru hśs į Ķslandi byggš meš žaš ķ huga aš žola meiri įlag en gengur og gerist.

En hér mį sjį tjóniš sem varš ķ sķšasta Sušurlandsskjįlfta, en žį flaug ég yfir og tók žessar myndir:
