abstract Both cross-sections are on a scale of 1:10 in order to visualise the curved surface of the floor more clearly. By making cross-sections on the two main axes (north-south, west-east), the different deformations of the floor are made visible. Particularly noticeable is the difference between the rotunda’s floor and the floor level in the apses in the cross-section of the west-east axis. These two figures support the visualisation of other images (cf. figs. 28&40). The lower levels of the Pantheon are at the line of intersection between the outside walls and the floor inside the rotunda. The lowest point of the whole floor (fig. 56a), at the threshold between the rotunda and portico in the northern part of the Pantheon, is even more conspicuous when compared with the floor elevation inside the other niches. This observation leads to the theory that the paving tiles inside the niches were restored after antiquity. In both images the relatively flat central part of the rotunda with a small depression in its centre can be seen (see also fig. 28 with detailed description)
