Remains of the Porta Maggiore in Rome, with the ruins of an imposing tomb next to it. The tomb (a.k.a. Sepolcro del Fornaro Eurisaces) carries an identifying inscription across the lower area, and bas-relief figures across the top. Nearby is a simple two-story retaurant building. A small gate at its corner leads into a closed area next to it. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/13/95)
