This is my very heavily modified version of shimotos Library of Celsus as it would of appeared in the 2nd century.After much tinkering and ending up with a disfigured mess, i found that shimotos version was as close as you could possibly get to 1:1 scale and still know what you were looking at.

This library was one of the most important in the roman empire and is one of the most impressive surviving buildings ever created by them.It was built by the Roman proconsul of Ephesus to be both a library and his mausoleum. At its height it was a favorite repository of important documents and had 12,000 scrolls in its collection. the library survived untill 265 ad when it fell to barbarian invasion or an earthquake ,the facade lay in ruins untill it was reconstructed in 1970.

special thanks to shimoto for creating minecrafts first library of celsus and allowing others to use his work heres the link to the original

it for anything you want just give me credit for building it
