JORDAN – Sites

Jerash – Large columns of the west Propylaeum on the Cardo.

Since 2008, the activity of the Italian Archaeological Mission in Jordan was focussed on the excavation and restoration activities, still in progress, of a sector of the ancient city of Gerasa (now Jerash). In particular, the activities of Monumenta Orientalia were concentrated on the Sanctuary of Artemis located to the East of the main colonnaded street and the so-called Church of the Propylaea.
