Benezet's tomb was in the crypt. About 1300, Issim, the Moorish king of Granada, erected a fine bridge at Cordova, across the Guadalquiver. Perronet mentions a stone bridge of three arches, one of which had a span of 159 feet 9 inches, at Verona, erected in 1354. Also a bridge with a stone arch 183.8 feet span, 70.6 feet rise, erected 1454, at Vielle Bronde, over the Altier, by Grennier. The Rialto, of Venice, was erected by Antonio del Ponte, 1588.

The reservoir was poised by o
