"Both Anthemius and Isidorus were dead - spared the sight of their ruined handiwork - and the work of reconstruction was carried out by Isidorus the Younger, a nephew of the Elder. Attributing the fall to the thrust of the relatively low, flat dome of Anthemius, Isidorus built a new dome, steeper and twenty feet higher than the old. He made other alterations, restoring the piers, broadening the arches. The results were generally reassuring, since the new dome “did not frighten the spectators as formerly, but was set much stronger and safer.”
