Looking at the east-facing wall, notice the corbelled arches and squinches throughout and the precise stone cutting and fitting in these walls.  You will also notice the roof is missing, which was supposedly a large corbelled dome, which is inherently unstable and collapsed at some point in antiquity (it is not known from my research whether such a dome existed or whether it was left open to the sky originally).
