Description:

Scarce c.17th engraving of Roman antiquities; the Pyramid of Cestius (Piramide di Caio Cestio in Italian), near the Porta San Paolo and opposite the station named after it, Piramide. It was built as a tomb for Gaius Cestius, a member of the Epulones religious corporation. It stands at a fork between two ancient roads, the Via Ostiensis (to Ostia) and another road that ran west to the Tiber along the approximate line of the modern Via Marmorata.

From, Saedler, Vestigi delle antichita di Roma, Tivoli, Pozzuolo et altri luochi. 

Marco Sadeler (1614 - 1660)

Marco Sadeler (1614–1660) This series capitalised on the renewed interest in the monuments of classical antiquity which reached its climax in sixteenth century Rome. Marco Sadeler, whose name appears on the plates, was an engraver and print seller in Prague in the early 1600’s and probably the nephew of Aegidius.
