For the reconstructions the main buildings were begun with; followed by the camp walls with towers and gateways. The barracks of the infantry and cavalry, warehouses and the Scholae came last. Because barracks and the residential buildings of the tribunes were very much alike only two special complexes were reconstructed for both.
