The road bridge with a tiny section of masonry visible underneath

The TAY website is dedicated to recording the destruction of Turkey’s archaeological treasures and makes melancholy reading. One of its less cheery articles concerns the stonework in Pendik which was investigated in 1973-75, identified as a Byzantine monastery and promptly buried beneath a new road bridge. Not a lot here now (40.891269,29.238836). When that column base disappears, it will just be a pile of rubble.
