For the Torre di Boezio, which had spolia integrated into its structure, cf. C. MACCABRUNI, Pavia; La tradizione dell’antico nella citta medievale, Pavia 1991.

An equally short account appears as The city walls of Nicaea, Antiquity 12, 1938, pp. 437-43, where he suggests (p.439) that the cladding of some towers and curtains with blocks of fine marble occurred after the Arab incursions and depradations of 727, probably also the ramparts were covered with marble and then crenellated - but he doesn't say why.
