Approved Room Numbers for Synagogue Site

As noted in our 2001 Preliminary Report, the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici di Ostia (at the time) approved the first official numbering system which locates the synagogue structure at Ostia within its larger urban landscape.

In anticipation of two preliminary field reports which the OSMAP stuff has begun to prepare this spring, we are happy to make this plan available here on the blog, as well.  The plan reflects the final phase of the building as it is known today (chronological dating of the phases will appear on a future top plan, after a final review of archaeological and architectural data).
