Matthias Grebien: Gigthis, an Autopsy of some selected Monuments and a touristic Draft for the further public Utilisation of the archaeological PremisesAbstractThe objective of this paper is to take a close look at selected monuments of Gigthis in today's Southern Tunisia. We focused on the Grand Temple de la Rue de la Basilique, the so-called Aesculapius Sanctuary, the Place à Portiques, the market, and the Sanctuary of Mercury. Firstly, the monuments are analysed by means of older researchers, especially by L. A. Constans. Secondly, the results of an autopsy, made on the premises, will be presented. Thirdly, a comparison with other buildings of similar function and ground plans is drawn. This approach is taken in order to understand the utilisation of each monument and its context.In addition to this, the ground plans have been revised ? some alterations and additions have been made. For instance, in the Sanctuary of Mercury, we discoverd a connection between the courtyard and the northeastern rooms. L. A. Constans suggested that these rooms were isolated from the rest of the sanctuary and thought them to be a trading facility. After closer observation, that theory can now be dismissed. Based on a sole inscription, Constans identifies one compartment in the southern part of the Sanctuary of Mercury as a chapel of Fortuna, although no indication allows such a theory.Constans states that most of the monuments have been built in either second or the third century A.D. N. Ferchiou, however, made an effort to date some of the buildings to the first century A.D., basing her arguments on architectural fragments. Additionally, a concept for the city?s potential for public utilisation was drafted. Inter alia new media and communication technologies were also included. This draft is simply hypothetical, thus the financial component is not taken into consideration.
