Dirt road leads from a harbor across a small stream and up to the open gates of a medieval wall with towers. Boats in the harbor, people on or near the road: woman on donkey, people with baskets on head, man sketching the scene, men walking. Ruins lie by stream: chunk of Roman column and column head. (Virginia K. Anderson 12/17/93)
