Ancient and Modern Inscriptions on the Arch of Titus First, the ancient inscription on the E face of the monument. For nearly 2000 years it has been the first sight to meet the eyes of any Roman descending the Sacred Way: The inscription on the E face " or, to be technical, the holes left now that the bronze letters of the actual inscription have gone. It is, as one might expect of a major monument to a victorious emperor at the entrance to the Sacred Way, perfectly carved; except to modern eyes, for the minimal spacing between words: but notice that the interpuncts are there to mark word division...and much more

The Amphitheatrum Castrense The Amphitheatrum Castrense is one of those flukes of archaeology: built by Elagabalus, this brick amphitheatre was very likely one of many in ancient times. Today, however, it's a rarity, having survived because it was incorporated into a great work of fortification. [ 1 page, 3 images ]

The aquaduct outside of Ceasarea The Aqueduct brought running water to the old city of Caesarea, along a raised aqueduct. The source of the water was the springs of Shummi, 10KM away. Herod build the aqueduct in the 1st C BC. later, in the 2nd C AD it was expanded by the Romans. Later, 2 more aqueducts were built. [images] [Archaeology]

The Arch of Constantine The Arch of Constantine: built in the early 4th century AD to commemorate Constantine's tenth year in power, the arch was intended as yet another great monument of Roman propaganda. Over the long term, however, it fails miserably: in cobbling together for it some excellent sculpture of previous centuries and adding a few crabbed friezes of its own, the Romans created a fascinating comparative art gallery -- in which the Constantinian age does not come out well. 70 pictures

The gardens of the Villa Borghese The gardens of the Villa Borghese are on yet another hill: a beautifully landscaped large park with just the right density of tempietti, fountains and statues. If you are a non-Italian visitor to Rome, you're probably not even giving this place a thought -- mistake. The place to get some cool air surrounded by Roman families on their day off. [ 3 pages, 10 images ]

The Palatine Hill The Palatine Hill is a sort of 2800-year-old palimpsest of landscaping. Called the cradle of Rome because they found and raised babies in it -- Romulus and Remus, according to tradition -- it has by turns been the seat of the rich and powerful, an abandoned waste, a luxury escape for Renaissance popes, and now, less successfully, a mass of excavations. This rather weak subsite teases you with the so-called House of Livia and the Farnese Gardens. [ 3 pages, 8 images ]

The Pantheon The best-preserved of all Roman temples, and an astonishing feat of engineering. (Other than a major scholarly article cribbed from an 1875 book, this is a rather weak site for the moment, put up on 2/10/99.) [ 3 pages, 7 images ]

Trajan's Column built in the early 2d century AD to commemorate the emperor's campaigns in Dacia, this 30m column was once the centerpiece of a major urban complex including libraries, a temple, a basilica, and markets: only these last remain in anything like their ancient state. The column, however, is virtually intact. Recognized as the single best extant example of Roman monumental sculpture, it is also a storehouse of information on the Roman army, trade in the empire, and daily life. [ 3 pages, 37 images ]
