Thumbnail[has location information] Turkey Koprukoy aka Chobandede Seljuk stone bridge SEW.jpg (Earth Views)

  • turkey = .tr, Türkei, Turquía, Turquie, Turquia, Turchia

This bridge, at Köprükoy or Çobandede, was built in the 12th century A.D..
Take note of the shape of the buttresses on the legs of the bridge.   They are basically the same shape as the Pharos (the lighthouse) of Alexandria.   Imagine taking two of these buttresses and standing them back-to-back away from the bridge.   What you end up with is a tower that has a square cross section near the bottom, an octangular cross section half way up and a circular cross section near the top — just like the Pharos.   I've seen this shape used in a few contexts in Turkey, all dated later than the Pharos.   I don't know whether the Pharos is the original usage of this shape or whether the source is older than that.

It didn't feel terribly safe to walk over this bridge at Şavşat, but it was actually strong enough for cars to use!
