The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

There are two interesting plaques in this upper area - this one shows more of the general historical figures who were held here (and what happened to them...) The dates - aC - here mean BEFORE Christ. So 200 years before Christ this prison was being used already to hold Ponzio, King of the Sanniti, before he was beheaded.
