Archaeological sites

 

This pyramid was built between the years 18 and 12 bC as a tomb for Caius Cestius , a magistrate, tribune of the pleb  and member of the religious corporation of the  Septemviri Epulonum . Inspired by  the Egyptian pyramids, quite fashionable in Rome during the Augustan age, that of Caius Cestius is the only surviving example of Roman pyramids. The pyramid itself is included in the Aurelian Walls. On one face of the pyramid is an inscription which states that it took 330 days to complete the construction. Measuring some 36 metres in height, 29.6 in width, its current size seems smaller because of the higher level of the modern road on which it stands. The structure is faced in Carrara marble and, thanks to recent restoration work, the inside, where one can see the refined frescoes painted on white backgrounds, can now be visited.
