Abstract

148 instance of incertum with layers of pure brick is found in Tiberius' villa in Capri 1), and cases of incertum, intersected by layers of qua- dratum occur for instance at Antioch and Seleucia Pieria (3rd cent. A.D.) 2). It is probable that together with the sundried-technique the custom of reinforcing these walls, for instance by horizontal layers of coctiles, was introduced into Magna Graecia from Mesopotamia. Whatever the reason-according to Billig, simply for the sake of a sound professional tradition 3)-this practice was continued, even when the solid brick construction did no longer need any special reinforcement. Thus it may be that the afterwards highly perfected listatum-technique takes its roots in similar old building-methods in Eastern countries. In the old sundried-walls and in the incertum this construction based on real technical grounds. In the Roman listatum the stress has been shifted: here the craftsman has a decorative game with his material, perhaps also under the influence of economical motives. 1) Maiuri, o.c., 192, note 1; cf. also Billig, o.c., 126. 2) Fisher, Antioch on the Orontas, I (1934) ,6 ; Stillwell, Antioch on the Orontas III (1941), 11-12. 3) Billig, o.c., 143-144.
