The Via Appia (Appian Way), Rome, Italy, 1927. The tomb of Cecilia Metella is in the background. The Via Appia was a road built by the Romans that connected Rome with Brindisi on the Apulian coast. Cecilia Metella was the daughter of Quintus Caecilius Metellus Creticus, who was Roman Consul in 69 BC. She was also the daughter-in-law of Triumvir Marcus Licinius Crassus. Her husband, Marcus Licinius Crassus the Younger, built a mausoleum for her on a hill overlooking the Appian Way. From Italien in Bildern, by Eugen Poppel [August Scherl, Berlin, 1927]
