Monumental Stone Work in Early Ancient Rome

• arclein
Archeologists digging in Italy have unearthed a structure unlike anything the Romans were known to have built in the era 350 to 250 years before Christ. The Roman monument, which is as large as a football field and dates some 300 years before the well-known Colisseum of Rome, has two terraces connected by a huge staircase. It is also notable for a massive stone retaining wall and beautiful and geometrically patterned floors.
