Abstract

On May 27, 1970, during construction of the Ca arella sewer system which was to serve new districts in the sprawling suburbs of Rome, the Municipality of Rome alerted the Soprintendenza to the discovery of some ancient structures near the via Appia. The area a ected by the passage of the sewer system lies just beyond the Almo river, between the Appia’s rst and second mile, in a place where, at the end of the 19th c., P. Cartoni built a rather large barn for his estate (vigna). On the W side of the road, excavators discovered a concrete pedestal reveted with tu blocks that was interpreted as the foundation of a sepulchral monument, the ruderatio of the via Appia, and a secondary paved road leading southeast, as published by L. Spera. However, the excavations on the E side of the via Appia have never been published. The aim of this paper is to describe and interpret the remarkable discovery.
