WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL....I was fortunate to be able to tour this
Today's Pantheon, the oldest large public building in use in the world, is the work of Hadrian (76 - 117 - 138 (62)), who rebuilt a 27BC south facaded structure erected by Augustus' contemporary and latterly son-in-law Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa ("M.Agrippa" - now that's a power name if ever there was one - that's him on the left in the Louvre Museum). Hadrian, the great builder Emperor, was nice enough to have Agrippa's name put on the new north facing facade.
